Philly's favorite bald beast in the kitchen, Marc Vetri, took to Twitter today to announce that his empire is expanding yet again. Vetri told Eater that he just signed on the dotted line to take over the structure that was once the brig (naval military prison) at The Navy Yard in South Philly. Unsurprisingly, Vetri has named this new restaurant—drum roll, please—The Brig.
Vetri is shooting for a Spring 2014 opening for his Navy Yard restaurant, which follows his other local high-profile project, Pizzeria Vetri, which is "opening in late July" at 19th and Callowhill Streets.
