Two BYOBs have set their finales for June 28:

There's West Philadelphia's Marigold Kitchen, which I've previously said will button up after service that night as chef/owner Robert Halpern wants to move on. Marigold - which has had several incarnations in that big Victorian on a leafy corner - will live on. Halpern has a buyer, whose name he won't disclose just yet.

Racine, the Pottstown fine-dining yearling, is calling it a day. It opened last fall. Chef-owner Greg Vassos is weighing his options.
