The KleInsider is reporting that both Boston-based bachelor chef Todd English and the owners of the New York’s Serafina chain are both in talks to install a restaurant the ground floor of 10 Rittenhouse the luxury building off of Rittenhouse Square. No one’s signed anything yet (and the Inky previously floated Daniel Stern as a possible tenant), so this is all a bit how-your-inside-baseball-sausage-gets-made for most of the gen pop. Besides, we’re still smarting over how the perfectly good Lombardi’s pizzeria (and adorable Rindelaub’s Bakery!) were torn down to build 10 Rittenhouse. The Illadelph confirms the restaurant’s entrance will be at 18th and Sansom Streets and wonders if Starr might also be in the running.
