I'm very excited to have the second Paesano's location a little closer to my house. Does anybody know if it's open yet. This article (http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/th...) says that they were shooting for a Nov. 1st opening.

    Foobooz has it listed for some time in December, but I don't know what their source is.

          I looove that Sicilian chickpea wrap thing. My god it's so good and it's such a good size if you aren't super super hungry. And $4?!? Wow.

            Agreed. I'm far from vegetarian, but it might be my favorite thing on their menu.

            Well, probably not, but it's still freaking delicious.

        On 12/30, Micheal Klein tweeted: "Paesano's new spot in Italian Mkt is about two weeks out, says owner Peter McAndrews."

              Foobooz says about a week to go - so end of this coming week!

              The owners said similar things to me when I was in their Fishtown location mid-week last week also, so hopefully there will be no more postponements, because I am ready :)
