Restaurant notes: East Passyunk doings; assorted expansions

A bar from Green Eggs is on the way.

Restaurant notes: East Passyunk doings; assorted expansions


Bunch of things popping up on the radar:

Cantina Los Caballitos, the rockin' Mexican at 1651 E. Passyunk Ave., is going for outdoor seating in the lot next door.

The guys from Green Eggs Cafe (South Philly and Northern Liberties) are behind the liquor application posted at 1536 E. Passyunk Ave. They have not returned my calls over the last two weeks; I mentioned their search for an East Passyunk spot back in March. The lack of firm info has prompted some in the neighborhood (especially one restaurateur not eager to see more competition) to spin yarns that they're going for an after-hours club. That's hooey. The application calls for a bar on the first floor, not a club. I'm hearing Stateside as the name.

Local 44, at 44th and Spruce Streets, is planning a bottle shop slash beer room next door. The liquor application is in the works, and the plan has cleared zoning. All that's missing is a signed lease.
