Revival of Restaurant M

Opening after July 4: The relaxed room at the Morris House Hotel near Washington Square, which includes one of the sweetest outdoor gardens in Center City.

Restaurant M at the Morris House Hotel at 231 S. Eighth St. near Washington Square, which went through two chef-owners (Edmund Rek and David Katz) before it closed in 2007, will be coming back just after the July 4 weekend.

This time, hoteliers Michael DiPaolo and Gene Lefevre will keep it simple. They'll use the small indoor room at the 1787 colonial manor, but the focus will be on drinks in the outdoor garden -- one of the sweetest outdoor spaces in Center City. Since they use that garden for weddings on Fridays and Saturdays, they'll open M from Sundays through Thursdays, at least through the summer.

And rather than fuss with a chef, they'll put out simple snacks from Pascual Cancelliere, who is about to open an Italian-Argentine BYO called 943 across from Villa diRoma in the Italian Market.
