Michael Schulson is on a roll, adding yet another new eatery to his Philly lineup. His latest is going into the 1700 block of Locust Street, right off Rittenhouse Square next to Stephen Starr’s French brasserie Parc (will Schulson eventually catch up with Starr, who has 20 restaurants in Philly alone?). Parc, with its corner location, fronts the park and also extends along Locust. Schulson’s newest restaurant will be on Locust, between the Starr spot and steakhouse Prime Rib.
The restaurant is going to be on the small side at just 2,000 square feet, reports Philly.com. It looks like it’s part of Allan Domb’s Parc Rittenhouse condo building, which houses Parc too.
Nearby, Schulson is also working on a steakhouse, set in a former computer store on 13th Street next to his Double Knot, which is next to his Sampan. A couple blocks away, Giuseppe & Sons, his collaboration with the Termini Bros. family, is slated to open this summer.
In Philly, Schulson also has Harp & Crown and Independence Beer Garden, plus a food court branch of Double Knot, called DK Sushi, in the new Franklin’s Table at Penn. Earlier this year, he bought Osteria (the Marc Vetri-turned-Urban Outfitters property). Philadelphians in Atlantic City can eat at Izakaya at the Borgata. Floridians get Monkitail.
