I wrote in October that Chef Matt Levin formerly of Adsum started working with Brulee Catering (formerly Max & Me), whose parent company is "Guest Counts" earlier this fall. Barry Gutin and Larry Cohen confirm that Matt Levin is going to be at the helm of the exciting new unnamed restaurant at 10th & Walnut Streets in what is currently a Marathon Grill restaurant.
In a Dan Gross column he wrote:
"Expect the 10th & Walnut location of the Marathon Grill to change names in January, although it will remain an American bistro. The change is related to a legal settlement of a case that Bernard Spain and Murray Spain brought against Marathon and the Borish family in June.
We're told Barry Gutin and Larry Cohen of Cuba Libre (10 S. 2nd) and their company, Guest Checks, will run the new restaurant, which shouldn't require much down time. The transformation is expected to begin around the first of the year.
LeSean McCoy did an amazing thing on Saturday. He went on a shopping spree at Toys R US on Aramingo Avenue and then delivered the gifts to over (100) children battling cancer that the Kisses for Kyle Foundation serves. Photo Credits- John Alexanian
