David Fields, owner of A. Kitchen inside the AKA Rittenhouse, is taking over the property at the corner of 18th and Walnut streets that most recently housed a Kiehl’s store. His plan is to create a spinoff of the hotel’s restaurant. Foobooz reports that the new venture will specialize in raw foods, since the space isn’t equipped with a hood. But the 700-square foot restaurant, which will seat 35 when complete, will most certainly serve wine and cocktails. The opening is expected sometime in May. [Foobooz]
