Old City's Got a New-24 Hour Diner

It's the first of its kind in the neighborhood


In a city which boasts some of the finest diners in the entire country, Revolution Diner hopes to make a lasting impression on the Old City scene.

Per this report by, the new diner at 239-241 Chestnut Street (between The Little Lion and Old City's Best Western) is the reconceptualization of Imad Dawara's Barra and B-Side. The diner's name coincides with, of course, the neighborhood's historical relevance, but also with the soon-to-open Museum of the American Revolution, just across the street.

The menu leans Italian, and is, apparently, enormous (as most diner menus tend to be).
