Restaurant notes: Deli closes, building is in play

Pikkles Plus, the sandwichery at 18th and Market Streets for 10-year-plus after two decades at 16th and Sansom Streets, has closed. I await a callback from owner Paul Berue, whose outgoing voicemail suggests a new location. Meanwhile, Paige Barrow at Fameco Real Estate is seeking a new tenant for the 2,500-square-foot space, which includes the flower shop next door.

Also recently buttoned up is the Sarcone's Deli franchise store in Newtown, Bucks County.


A contingent of chefs has descended on what is known as the Stapler building at 1222-24 Walnut St., so much so that the building's new owners are seeking zoning approval. (The idea is to obtain the zoning clearance to smooth the way for a future restaurant.)


Isabella in Conshohocken has rolled out a vegetarian menu. It's at barisabella.com.


Bruce Cao will mark the second anniversary of Le Viet, his stylish South Philadelphia Vietnamese restaurant, with a neat promo on April 14: Pho Dac Biet (Le Viet House Special Noodle Soup) and Pho Ga (Chicken Noodle Soup) will be priced at $2.22, as will the Thai Iced Tea. From April 8-13 and April 15-20, he also will price a three-course menu at $17.22.
