Triangle Tavern is no more!
Article on Page B1 of today's Inquirer. The Triangle Tavern in South Philly has closed. I wonder where the "band" will play next.
I can't really say this information stunned me. Unfortunately, this place has been relying on it's reputation and the faithful neighborhood customers for far too long. The only reason to go there in the last several years *was* to hear the band. That's great if you are a nightclub, but a death knell if you are marketing yourself as a restaurant. There's far better pizza at Tacconelli's and far better "red gravy-South Philly cuisine" at Ralph's or almost anywhere else. Harsh, but a tragic reality. I wish the owners the best of luck in the sale and hopefully the space will be taken over by someone with newer ideas and innovations. Maybe a new Chowhound favorite? We can only hope...
