Percy Street BBQ opening shop at Comcast Center

Center City will get a tasty smoked-meat fix come October as Percy Street Barbecue has inked a deal to put a satellite shop in the Market & Shops at the Comcast Center.

Signs are up at what was an Au Bon Pain outlet at the top of the ramp leading from the shops into the center, at 17th Street and JFK Boulevard.

This will be the first satellite for owners Steven Cook, Michael Solomonov, and chef/partner Erin O'Shea, who opened the original at Ninth and South Streets two years ago. There will be no smoking on premises.

The Percy Street will serve sandwiches and sides, including brisket with sharp cheddar, horseradish mayo and pickled green tomato; pulled pork with collard greens, provolone and BBQ sauce; smoked ham with pickles, Swiss cheese and mustard; chopped brisket with pickles, fried onions and cheddar sauce; boneless ribs with coleslaw; and smoked turkey with tomato-bacon marmalade and avocado; plus pies for dessert.

All $10 and under.

Hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Cook and Solomonov, who also own Zahav, are working with Felicia D'Ambrosio on Federal Donuts, a fried-chicken-and-doughnut shop in South Philly. Its opening is targeted toward September.

In this "Chef's Corner" video, watch O'Shea make magic with brisket.
