Joe Pesce, the casual yet refined Italian BYOB that's been at 833 Haddon Ave. in Collingswood since 2007, traditionally takes a summer vacation after July 4.
This year, it may be a permanent vacation.
Chef/owner Joseph Tucker and his wife, Chasity, are flying high in Longport with Catch 2401, which they restored top to bottom over the winter to bring it back from Sandy flooding. Catch 2401 just earned a rave from The Inquirer's Craig LaBan, and the crowds are heavy.
This may explain the real estate listing for Joe Pesce.
Tucker said by text that he's "just testing the water. ... If nothing happens, I'm going to open it back up in September."
