Newcomers on Walnut

Newcomers on Walnut


How about Walnut Street, east of Broad?

Sumo Sushi, which opened at Broad and Pine Streets in summer 2010, is fixing to go into 1316 Walnut St., once a camera shop a few doors from the IHOP. This one is months away, as a zoning hearing is up for Oct. 26.

Yong Chi of Giwa (1608 Sansom St.) is looking at late 2011 for Rice & Mix (1207 Walnut St.), a Korean quick-serve. It will be next to Philly's second Yogorino shop, also up for late fall, and Marabella Meatball Co.
