Tapestry is closed, but it's called temporary

Change in liquor licenses is in the works.

Tapestry is closed, but it's called temporary

Looks like the partnership behind Tapestry at Fifth and Bainbridge Streets has gone sour.

The bar, open about 10 months, is closed - but it's temporary, pending a liquor license transfer, says partner Rich Rivera. He said business had been good.

Partner Kar Vivekananthan opened the spot as Adsum in July 2010 with chef Matt Levin.

When that arrangement collapsed, Vivekananthan brought in Rivera and Rob Nydick, whose Belvedere Group owns Main Street Market and Agiato in Manayunk.

"It's time to go," Vivekananthan said.
