The Making of Charlie Was a Sinner: Construction update

0 comments

Third in a series that follows the creation of Charlie Was a Sinner, the curiously named vegan bar at 131 S. 13th St. from entrepreneur Nicole Marquis, owner of the HipCityVeg quick-serve shops. Part 1 is here. And Part 2 is here.

Just a quick update here:

Although Marquis had believed that the bar would open in mid-April, she is hoping to get rolling by Cinco de Mayo.

The windows are due next week, as are repairs to the metal awning out front. A sign is on the way, too.

Most important, Philadelphia Gas Works is expected to show up on Monday, April 21 to hook up the gas for cooking. Chef Michael Santoro has been testing dishes at his South Philadelphia restaurant, The Mildred.

Meanwhile, workers have installed the full kitchen in what had been a dungeon of a basement.

One issue that cannot be remedied, though: Any kitchen worker over 6-foot-2 will have to duck.
