Striped Bass To Close

It’s official. Continuing our summer of restaurant closings (Azure/Sansom Street Oyster House/etc.), grand dame 215 icon Striped Bass is closing its doors this fall.

The 14-year-old restaurant, which survived Neil Stein’s downfall and became Stephen Starr’s anchor resto in the pre-Buddakan days, will be retooled into a 1940s supper club-styled steakhouse called “Butcher & Singer Steak & Seafood.”

Once opened, it will join Barclay Prime as Starr’s second Philadelphia steakhouse.

According to Michael Klein over at Food & Drinq, staffers will be shifted over to other Starr restaurants.
