Philly – 7/14/14 – Serpico & Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co

As expected ex-New Yorker Peter Serpico is doing great things in Philly. I may even forgive him for partnering with the intolerable Stephen Starr because I liked this place so much. Loved the decor by Thomas Schlesser and this would be a perfect spot for solo dining because of the very large section of counter seating around the open kitchen. And while we did just arrive just before a deluge, it flooded the restrooms.
