Pei Wei Invades Philly

A few openings, rounded up over at the Inquirer’s Food and Drinq blog:

Pei Wei Asian Diner, P.F. Chang’s budget spinoff chain, is making a concerted effort to break into the Philly market. Locations are opening up in Springfield (October 8) and on City Avenue (October 22). Can anyone explain why the Philadelphia ‘burbs are in love with chain restaurants that have all the soul of a cardboard box?

• Old City Belgian gastropub/potential mussel haven Beneluxx Tasting Room is aiming for an October 5 opening. Right now they’re sorting out some issues with the LCB.

• A new steakhouse might be opening near Washington Square.
