Philly's fall food forecast


Economic forces continue to pummel the restaurant industry, with more than three dozen closings in the region this year. Yet, surprisingly, at least as many eager opportunists have stepped in, checkbooks in hand, to open new ones.

"Cheaper and smaller" is the name of the game these days in the restaurant scene.

From Sunday's Inquirer, here's a look at what's going on in town. (In the print version, the name of the chef/owner of Rubb was incorrect. It's Matt Levin.)
