Two things just happened. First, no one voted in the primary elections. And second, Georges Perrier announced that he’s changing the name of Le Bec-Fin’s Le Bar Lyonnais to Tryst. Gag. Since we all seem to care more about restaurants than we do the possibility of Milton Street beating Michael Nutter (gag, again), I thought we’d have a little fun in deciding Philly’s most stupid restaurant (or bar) name. Past or present.
And the candidates are:
Tryst: Wow, Perrier. Just. Wow.
Chenango: Arrow Swim Club’s restaurant element sounds more like a movie about a boy and his dog, Chenango. “Come back, Chenango!”
Swanky Bubbles: A name as bad as the place itself. At least it’s fitting.
Pastrami and Things: Just what are these “things” in my sandwich?
Whisper: Oh, and the private room is called Shhh.
Swallow: Yes, we know it was named after the nautical tattoo, but c’mon!
G Lounge: The G stands for god awful.
Chubby Balboa’s: You don’t mess with Rocky.
