An orange liquor-transfer sign is up at the long-shuttered Full Moon Saloon at 131 S. 13th St., and public records ID the applicant as a company controlled by real estate powerhouse Allan Domb.
Domb would tell me only that he bought the building and that it came with a liquor license.
Word on the street is that Nicole Marquis of HipCityVeg - the smash-hit vegan quick-serve located in a Domb property on Rittenhouse Square - is considering the spot.
Domb is no stranger to the restaurant business. He owns Schlesinger's Deli at 1521 Locust St. and is an investor in a few Stephen Starr restaurants, including El Vez (two doors away) Barclay Prime (located inside the Barclay, which Domb owns). I'm hearing that Starr is not a part of this project.
