Tweed getting a new tenant

It's Brian Harrington of City Tap House, et al., who's supposedly planning an upscale bistro.

Tweed, a bistro in the old TPDS space at 114 S. 12th St., went belly-up in June 2011.

Ugly situation. Shut down cold. Furnishings ripped out.

Building owner Howard Taylor says he has a new tenant, Brian Harrington, part of the group that owns City Tap House, Public House, Mission Grill, and Field House, to do an upscale bistro.

Harrington, who has not returned numerous calls, has been working with Top Chef contender and erstwhile 10 Arts potbanger Jennifer Carroll and with Jersey Shore chef Luke Palladino, but I have been told that neither will be the chef on 12th Street.
