Noir to replace Sticks & Stones

The East Passyunk bar gets a new concept.

Noir to replace Sticks & Stones

Marcos Decotiis, who's been working at La Stanza at 20th and Oregon (he was seen in the restaurant's appearance on the Food Network's Restaurant Impossible last summer), is taking over at 1909 E. Passyunk Ave.

That space was Sticks & Stones before landlord Anthony Criniti locked out S&S's Nick Miglino over rent issues.

Decotiis will call it Noir, which will feature a '40s-/'50s-style American-French menu, jazz music, and black-and-white noir movies.

He said it's four to five weeks from opening.
