We came across this Craigslist ad today and wonder what space the ad could be referring. We have our thoughts but want to know what you think.
40 seat BYOB ready to go in Bella Vista/Queens Village/Society Hill area, for sublet with the purchase of the turnkey operations.
The price for the turnkey it does not buy the equipment, but it gives the allowance for usage, the price asked $120.000.Amazing rent price and 4 years lease!!!!.
This is a great opportunity for hands on owners wanted to make a good living out their own business. If any interest in this opportunity, please send your resume with work experience to the email above, we will need a confidently contract for you to sign, to get more information. The reason of passing this over is moving out of the state. Thanks.

We haven’t done a blind item for awhile now but they’re always fun.
Care to take a guess as to what “charming BYOB restaurant” is for sale for $160,000?
Charming BYOB restaurant for sale in the University City area of Philadelphia. 7 Years established, LOW DOWNPAYMENT with Seller Financing to a Qualified Buyer! Needs to sell due to personal reasons. This is a great opportunity for a new owner operator to break into a turnkey establishment with minimal out of pocket expense. Established 7 years ago with rave reviews for food quality, preparation, freshness, and atmosphere. Great location in the burgeoning area of University City. Long term lease available, starting at only 2k per month. Employees willing to stay on. Seller willing to train. Currently seats 40 in and up to 40 people outside during warmer months. Owner not the chef, who should stay. However, some minor changes and a new owner can put their stamp on the restaurant.

We hear that two very prominent restaurant partners will be parting ways in the very near future and divvying up their considerable culinary empire between them.
We’d cry a tear for this sad separation if one of the partners weren’t so good at doing it himself.

What bistro is behind on its bills? We hear purveyors will no longer deliver to this well-received spot and that dishwashers are not paid and walked out.
Is the location jinxed or the owner?

The Inky’s Michael Klein has tucked a delicious morsel into an otherwise innocuous post on Finn McCool’s today:
…talk is growing that Jason Evanchik of Vintage on 13th Street is planning to renovate a watering hole on Sansom into something considerably more stylish and (lest I identify the existing joint) less Teutonic.
Please, Jason Evanchik of Vintage, do not add any stylishness to the hideous wonder that is that Teutonic joint on Sansom Street. Clean it, improve the food, tidy up the beer list and, for Pete’s sake, keep the dirndls. For inspiration, you might look to the new and improved, yet still appealing Ortlieb’s.
Midtown Village has enough style, it needs a little old-school quirkiness to keep it real.
