Phoodie goes where others fear to tread - the Northern Liberties message board - and discovers trouble in Bart Blatstein's Piazza paradise. According to Phoodie, Vino's original owner has departed and the spot is now being directly run by Tower Investments, which, of course, was always an owner because the corporation owns all of the liquor licenses in the Piazza. Peruse the message board postings on Vino, which run from vitriolic to unreadable, at your peril. No word on why the operator got the boot, but perhaps they committed the cardinal sin of being uncool?
