Restaurant notes: Society Hill Hotel and Manila Bay close

The Old City B&B's license expired.

Restaurant notes: Society Hill Hotel and Manila Bay close

A couple recent closings to note:

Society Hill Hotel, which has held down Third and Chestnut Streets for a decade, closed over the weekend. I have been unable to contact management, but I will note that state records indicate that its license expired back on Oct. 31. 

What's probably the city's only traditional Filipino restaurant, Manila Bay on Castor Avenue in Oxford Circle, pulled the plug recently, according to Jersey Foodies. My messages have not been returned. Where do you go for a mechado fix? How about Taste of the Tropics in Phoenixville. (Know any others? Email me at mklein@phillynews.com.)
