Restaurant notes: Seafood on South St., Vetri makes Bon Appetit

Four locals make OpenTable's late-night list.

Restaurant notes: Seafood on South St., Vetri makes Bon Appetit

Let's catch up with a few odds and ends:

David Ralic of Ralic's Steakhouse in Haddonfield is planning to cross the Ben to open a seafood concept at 117-119 South St., the former Mallorca and short-lived Black Angus. The name and menu are TBA.

Marc Vetri's recipe for Slow-Roasted Glazed Pork Shoulder makes September's Bon Appetit. See it here.

OpenTable's list of the top 100 late-night dining restaurants in the U.S. includes the Adelphia in Deptford, Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Old City, Rum Bar in Rittenhouse, and World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington.

There's a new owner at Red Sky at 224 Market St. in Old City. Aside from seeking an amusement permit at the lounge (presumably for DJs), first-timer Richard Moore is keeping his intentions close to the vest for now.

New-ish Japanese/Korean mix in Spring House, Montgomery County, is getting solid word-of-mouth: Surah (1121 N. Bethlehem Pike, 267-470-4310). Owner Tae Yeon Kim owned a traditional Korean BBQ place called Good House at Second Street and Olney Avenue in East Oak Lane.

The Jolly's dueling piano bar at 1420 Locust St. (inside the Academy House) is being reflagged Duel, as Jolly Weldon is no longer involved.
