Koo Zee Doo coming to Northern Liberties

Koo Zee Doo?

Koo Zee Doo coming to Northern Liberties


The very well-traveled husband-wife team of David Gilberg and Carla Goncalves (Matyson, Loie, Coquette, Ugly American) is taking over the Northern Liberties storefront at 614 N. Second St., which previously housed Copper Bistro and Aden.

Their BYOB will be called KOO ZEE DOO, the phonetic pronunciation for the Portuguese adjective for “cooked” (and the first word in the traditional dish cozido á Portuguesa, a boiled dinner with a variety of meats, including smoked sausages and vegetables).

The couple -- her background is Portuguese -- married seven years ago, a year after their graduation from Haverford College. The idea, they say, is to use quality ingredients prepared simply. Check average will be under $20. After some sprucing up, they hope to open in mid-September.
