Final touches are being applied to SoWe at 22d and Carpenter Streets.

SoWe, a modern bistro at 22d and Carpenter Streets, has set Wednesday, April 25 as its first public night.

Say it "so we," and the name is a play on "Southwest Center City" - the other name for the neighborhood that some have been calling Graduate Hospital or G-Ho.

Owners Nancy Law and Troy Barton have installed earth-tone walls, reclaimed wood floor, and bar crafted from weathered oak in the space that last housed Divan Turkish Kitchen. (Divan's chef has turned up across town in a new venture.)

SoWe will serve dinner. Lunch is a few weeks away. Here's the unfussy menu from executive chef Maureen Stoebenau, most recently chef de cuisine at Royal Tavern.
