Restaurant veterans Paul DiBona of Pepperoncini in Conshohocken and Sam Arbitman and Rich Fattori of Moonshine in South Philly are taking over Delco's former Briarcliffe Bar & Grill with Cedar Craft & Kitchen (1061 Cedarwood Rd., Glenolden).
Cedar Craft & Kitchen, to open later this month, is intended as a casual, upbeat, neighborhood-focused Italian restaurant and tavern.
DiBona, as chef, will oversee the menu, which will include putino - a riff on the Quebec specialty poutine, which is potato wedges and tomato-braised pork over the customary cheese curds.
The restaurant, open nightly for dinner at first, will seat 40, while the 20-seat bar will offer cocktails, a small wine list, and 12 taps featuring local and national craft beer on draft as well as bottles and cans.
There will be live music a few nights a week, and outdoor sidewalk seating will be available, weather permitting.
