First there was stuffy Jake’s, where I once dropped more than $100 on a mediocre brunch for two. Then owner Bruce Cooper opened adjacent (and more casual) wine-and-pizza spot Cooper’s, in 2008. Just recently he repainted, redesigned, and combined the two into one restaurant with one menu and one chill vibe, which is the best thing he could possibly have done. You’ll enjoy the high-value wine list, the polenta gnocchi, and the brick-oven-roasted branzino at what is now one of Manayunk’s best bets.

If you still think Manayunk is a culinary wasteland, you’re wrong. Oh, there’s plenty of bad. But there’s also Clark Gilbert’s fine Italian destination Gemelli (which recently became Bisou), and Nongyao “Moon” Kraputhong’s always-reliable Chabaa Thai. And now Kraputhong has added Yanako, an elegant, tranquil Japanese BYO to the equation. The cooked food is fine, but the offerings from the sushi bar are truly excellent. The rolls tend to be complex, which is just the way we like them. And if the live uni and top-shelf o-toro tuna belly are available, you’d be a fool not to order them.

Michael Klein reports that Agiato in Manayunk is closed again. This time, the ventilation system is said to be to blame. This is the restaurant’s third shutdown in a year and as Klein notes, the liquor license is currently listed as inactive. Agiato is owned by Belvedere Restaurant Group, the same group behind Tapestry which is also currently closed, but seemingly destined to reopen in February.
UPDATE: The wheel landed on green. Michael Klein is now reporting that Agiato reopened yesterday.

Chef Clark Gilbert has closed his Gemelli on Main in Manayunk and is reconceptualizing the space into Bisou (a friendly kiss), a French bistro. According to Gemelli’s web site, the new spot promises “romance and adventure.”
Gilbert’s Gemelli on Main opened on Main Street, Manayunk back in June of 2011 after a run as just Gemelli, a BYOB in Narberth.

Jose Garces alums Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal are opening their third spot together. After the successes of La Calaca Feliz in Fairmount and Cantina Feliz in Fort Washington, the pair is aiming for Taqueria Feliz in Manayunk.
Michael Klein reports that the third Mexican spot will be a “South Philly-style Mexican taqueria” with liquor license on Main Street in Manayunk. The restaurant will open at 4410 Main Street, in the space that was at one time slated to be Cervisia from the Belvedere Restaurant Group (Tapestry, Agiato).
