Restaurant notes: Birra back on track; The Twisted Tail hires a chef

East Passyunk project resumes work shortly.

Restaurant notes: Birra back on track; The Twisted Tail hires a chef


If you're attending Flavors of the Avenue on Saturday, April 30 on East Passyunk, you'll see a presence from Birra, the Italian beer/wine concept planned for 1700 E. Passyunk (aka 12th and Morris Streets). Owner Gordon Dinerman has overcome his zoning issues and workers will resume construction early next week. An early June opening is anticipated.

The Twisted Tail, the bourbon and blues establishment planned for the former Kildare's on Second Street just above South, has hired a chef, Michael Stevenson, whose past includes the Mosholu and Paradigm. Owner George Reilly tells me that he's shooting for June 16. See the Facebook page.
