Three years after their debut on East Passyunk, Fond owners Lee Styer and Jessie Prawlucki and Tory Keomanivong are on the move from 1617 E. Passyunk Ave.

They're not going far - 289 feet, according to Google Maps. They're taking 1537 S. 11th St., which previously had been earmarked by Birra owner Gordon Dinerman for a burger bar called The Fountainhead.

They'll pick up a liquor license at the new location, which should open in October and November.

Here's Craig LaBan's most recent review, in which Fond was elevated to three bells.

Styer says the new Fond will have a six-seat bar. They have not determined what they will do in their current location.

Prawlucki owns Belle Cakery, a dessert shop, at 1437 E. Passyunk.
