The doors are about to open at Pizzeria Vetri in the Granary building on the 1900 block of Callowhill Street in Franklintown.

But let's turn our attention to the Granary's eastern edge at the corner of 19th and Callowhill Streets, directly across from the venerable Rose Tattoo Cafe.

Later this year, we should see the Philly debut of Gyu-Kaku, a yakiniku (or Japanese barbecue) chain. The shtick: customers cook beef, pork, poultry, seafood, vegetables and even desserts on in-table roasters. Sake is a specialty.

The local franchisee will apply for outdoor seating on both and 19th Street and Callowhill Street frontages, said Paige Barrow Jaffe of Fameco Real Estate, who with Larry Steinberg represented building owner Pearl Properties in the deal.
