Shank's & Evelyn's plans to move

Shank's & Evelyn's, that iconic South Philly luncheonette, is fixing to move uptown.

Pam Poppa explains the sign on the window, noted on Foobooz.com the other day, that gives April 30 as the last day.

Poppa's mom, matriarch Evelyn Perri, has sold the building and wants to relocate to Center City.

They have expressed interest in 120 S. 15th Street, the vacant sandwichery just above Sansom and across from the Union League.

Poppa says the partnership that brought a Shank's location to the Northeast last year has dissolved.
