Opening Alert: Historic Triangle Tavern Makes a Comeback

Happily, not too much has changed.

The Triangle Tavern made its triumphant return on Sunday, after sitting empty for years and facing plenty of turmoil and doubts long before it shuttered. The circa-1933 neighborhood bar and is now under the care of Stephen Simons and David Frank (Royal Tavern, Khyber Pass Pub, the Cantinas), who were revealed as the new owners back in the summer of 2013 following earlier rumors to that effect.

Previously, the Passyunk Post shared a look at the menu, which keeps up the nostalgic feel with Italian-American classics like chicken parm sandwiches, clams casino, white- or red-sauce mussels, and linguini with clams. And, much like Simons and Frank's other places, there are vegan options throughout. (Expect starters from $5 to $15, sandwiches around $9 to $12, entrees from $13 to $19.) The Post also has more details on plans for some proposed outdoor seating. Inside, the bar will look strikingly familiar to its fans, despite the extent of work done to the space.

Triangle Tavern is now open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily, with the kitchen closing at 1 a.m.. The official website notes that the grand opening is Wednesday, May 20, so keep an eye out for a possible party still to come.
