Kanella -Greek, 10th and Spruce

Does anyone know if this is open? I know they had a special Easter lunch last Sunday but I don't know if they are open regular hours yet. I can't find a phone number. It's where Logan's used to be.

  1. I believe they are open, but I haven't been there yet. I'm dying to go, I had several fantastic meals at the chef's previous restaurant, Meze (Pat Bombino's is in that space now).

    I had found a phone number online somewhere, but I just called it and it's disconnected, so I guess it was wrong. I haven't found their number anywhere else.

      I went there last night. Their phone number is 215-992-1773. Everything I tasted was very good, most of it excellent. If you go, be sure to get the 'dips of the day', those were fantastic. Hummus was one, the other two I can't really remember the names of but they both started with a 'T' and were absolutely delicious. The Cyprus ravioli were very good too, different from their incarnation at Meze, but still excellent. The service was a little slow, but not too bad, and they've only been open a week or so, so no big deal. It's BYO in case anyone didn't know.

        Thier number is actually 215 922 was printed incorrectly in city paper..went the other night it was just great..maybe the service was a bit hectic for a moment or two but we had a great time a fantastic dinner we each had 3 courses for total of $100 which includes a generous tip...the whole grilled barramundi was one of the BEST fish I have ever had and the orange blossom ice cream was trancendant.. there were at least 6 more things I wanted to order..needless to say am booking a table for the BF's b-day there OOPAH!!

          Well that's weird, our waiter was the one who gave me that number!

    2. Not sure if they are open yet or not, I pass by there all the time when I pick my wife up from work. I will scope it out closer in the next day or so. We use to like to swing into Logans for a fast bite before heading home, so hopefully this new place will be a good spot to add to a 'go to' list!

      1. I think they are open, I passed by last night (Tuesday) and there were people eating. It looks so cute, I can't wait to try it!

          They are definitely open and there's a menu posted in the window. I haven't been in yet, but the menu looks good.

            I went last Friday night and I highly recommend the place. Make reservations for the weekend since it was busy. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We had a great server who was hilarious. My husband and I split the grilled octopus and "dips" appies which were yummy. For entrees, we shared the lamb and quail special.The lamb was perfectly cooked. For dessert, we had a sticky cake. Overall, I liked the place a lot and would go back.

        2. I'm busting out of my normal lurker status to write about a seriously great experience here last night.

          Very simple decor inside - white and blue walls with thick rustic wooden tables.

          Staff very professional but friendly.

          We started with the trio of dips ($7) - hummus, which was very good; tahini, which was unusually good (I wouldn't think of having tahini on its own, but this was nice); and whatever the Cypriot word for tzatziki is (starts with a 't', sounds similar), also excellent.

          My wife had the mint and haloumi ravioli ($18) which was just brilliant. It was an unusual combination, at least to me, but it worked very well.

          I had a pork and lentil stew special ($16) which, after it cooled down a little bit, was very hearty and satisfying. Perfectly cooked vegetables and the pork was incredibly tender.

          For dessert we wanted just a scoop of their homemade anise ice cream, but they said they couldn't do that - you have to order them as a trio, but the other two flavors didn't interest us.

          This place is awesome and it fits a niche this neighborhood needs - a friendly, neighborhood BYOB with simple but excellent food at prices that are reasonable. All the meats (and vegetables, i think) are organic, which makes the prices even more reasonable.

          I'm eagerly awaiting more trips here.

          1. We went for lunch & it was great! Even pleased the kids- especially their own kid-friendly place settings! Everything we tried was prepared & served perfectly (really loved the pork sandwich), and the staff is super nice. They informed us they are awaiting a permit for outdoor seating. We will definitely be back!

            Also, apparently a Mexican place is coming across the street.
