Remember when Marathon mysteriously closed? (“Mysteriously” is a fancy way of saying they weren’t bringing in money and their service sucked.) Good news: Harvest Seasonal Grill (& Wine Bar) will be opening in Marathon’s spot at 40th and Walnut in June, as the DP reports. The restaurant serves seasonal, healthy (most dishes are under 500 calories), organic, local, sustainable, etc. etc. etc. food. Basically, the food comes from near Philly and is good for you. And the menu changes completely with the season! Which is rad.
As we all know, there’s a growing need for bars on campus that no one ever wants to go to as a result of the untimely death of MarBar– will HarBar fit the bill? Will the food be tasty? Will HarBar become part of Penn lingo? And WHY is it opening in June? Too many questions, man, too many questions.
