The Snow White, which started at the corner of Second and Market Streets in Old City before World War II, will have its last call after service on Easter Sunday.
Restaurateur Luca Sena is working with a partner on a plan to gut the long-running greasy spoon and add a second floor/roof deck. The concept will be Italian American diner.
Among the names he's tossing around is Revolution.
It will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner (plus cocktails), as well as offer a serious Neapolitan pizza program. Sena says he's using Pizzeria Stella as a baseline but says he'll do better.
He wouldn't give a timetable for construction.
Sena says at one time, brothers owned diners on both sides of Second Street: the Continental (which in 1995 was converted into the Stephen Starr martini bar of the same name) and the Snow White.
