June 8 debut for honeygrow



Honeygrow, a fast-casual eatery serving made-to-order/from-scratch stir-fry bowls, salads and frozen blended beverages, will open Friday, June 8u. The space carries the 1601 Sansom St. address, but is really a half-block north on 16th Street at Ionic Street. (It's the former Pita Pit space on the ground floor of the Oakwood apartments.)

The lead on this is Justin Rosenberg, an entrepreneur and MBA who left a stable career with real estate giant PREIT to chase his dream. He has rounded up some powerhouse partners/investors, including Brook Lenfest, the cable/telecom guy and philanthropist, and David Robkin, a former investor in Stephen Starr's empire. Chef Shola Olunloyo was enlisted to develop recipes. DAS Architects did up a sleek design reminiscent of momofuku.

The killer app, as it were, are the touchscreens, which have easy-to-follow graphics, a swipe-to-pay feature, and long memories so repeat customers' next visits will be even speedier.

Everything is under $10.
