Restaurant notes: Sale in Old City

Rob LaScala has bought Paradigm and Dolce.

Restaurant notes: Sale in Old City

There's been a changing of the guard at the side-by-side Old City restau-lounges Dolce and Paradigm (239-241 Chestnut St.).

For now, they're operating as they were, but buyer Rob LaScala, who runs LaScala at Seventh and Chestnut Streets, says he will simply change the menu at Dolce and -- by the summer -- close Paradigm and reconceptualize it.

The new incarnation will include Paradigm's signature restroom doors, which fog up when you lock the door (or provide a floor show if you don't). Founder David Ciurlino is moving on.
