Harvest's second location bound for Penn

Harvest's second location bound for Penn

Penn has announced that it has struck a deal with Dave Magrogan (Kildare's, Doc Magrogan's Oyster House) to place the upscale casual Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar at 40th and Walnut Streets, the former Marathon Grill and MarBar.

Magrogan says he expects a June opening for the green-themer, whose first location opened in 2010 in Glen Mills. Penn was the right fit for Harvest, he tells me, because of the "open feel." He expects to serve not only the Penn community but the University City neighborhood.

Harvest's hook is a wood-fired grill, dispensing brick-oven flatbreads and a seasonally changing menu whose entrees/apps come in at under 500 calories (desserts under 200). There will be 30-plus wines offered by the glass.
