Paesanos New Location - Is it open yet?

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 ( says that they were shooting for a Nov. 1st opening.

  1. 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.

    2. bumping this thread.... any news on the opening? It doesn't look like there's been any progress.

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

      2. There was a snafu with pgw and the l&i people[city of phila] I was told to look for them to open early february

        1. I just walked by it Saturday. I can't believe how big it is! Soooo much seating!

          1. I know wordbond said February, but another poster thought 2-3 weeks into January....

            Is it open yet??? I need a panelle!

              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 :)
