Just next door, partners from Rittenhouse’s Le Castagne are making good progress on Spiga, a “casual cousin” to their Italian fine-dining original, according to Philly.com. A wood-burning brick oven that has lain dormant since Girasole moved out of the space nearly a decade ago has been revived, and chef Brian Wilson is looking forward to turning out Neapolitan pizzas as well as grilling whole fish, meats and veggies for the uncomplicated menu. A selection of Italian wines and beers will round out the offerings (1305 Locust St.).

Former Tiffin chef Rakesh Ramola has found success across the river with his Indian BYO, but has not yet settled on a concept for the new venture (205 S. 13th St.).
