Stephen Starr to Take Over Serafina in Rittenhouse Square

This should've happened years ago


Today, Stephen Starr confirmed he'll be taking over the space at 130 S. 18th Street, currently Serafina. The concept isn't fleshed out just yet.

Serafina has been a bit of a blemish on Rittenhouse's dining scene since it first opened in 2011; mediocre food and strange service — not to mention abysmal reviews — led the high-trafficked space on 18th Street to languish over the past few years.

Eater operatives called the restaurant and a manager on duty said that, "to his knowledge", the new ownership is taking over in "two to three months". Allan Domb Real Estate owns the property and has a minority interest in Starr's restaurants.

Stay tuned.
