Lots of hammering and sawing going on at 11th and Wharton Streets, the former home of Carman's Country Kitchen.
New occupant of the corner, due this summer, will be Porto, a cafe/bistro from South Philly's Christine Liskowicz. (Say it Port-oo.)
She tells me she's a New Jersey native who did a year at the Culinary Institute of America. More importantly, she learned Portuguese cooking - with a capital T for tripe - at her mom's knee. She also cooked at Sabrina's.
She envisions her style as "fun, healthy and great," with big breakfasts and dinners.
