Petruce et al., the highly anticipated new project from Jonathan and Justin Petruce now slated to open in February, just confirmed a couple of huge names joining their team: Tim Kweeder, who will serve as general manager and wine director, and George Costa, who's signed on as beverage director.
Kweeder, whose resume includes sales at Moore Bros. and designing killer wine lists for spots like a.kitchen and a.bar, has been making a name for himself as a man on a mission to turn Philly from a Yellowtail shop to a city that can support a varied and vibrant wine scene.
Costa's practically a household name amongst drinkers in Philly, having overseen the bar to great acclaim at Southwark and Pub & Kitchen. His most recent credit was manager at Osteria.
Oh, and they're also both pretty good on Twitter, if you're into that sort of thing. (@TimothyKweeder; @barflyfish; more recommended follows: @petrucephilly, and their surprisingly adorable Instagram account.)
