Later this week, Stephen Starr will open the doors of his highly anticipated sea-to-table restaurant, Route 6. The restaurant, along with Marc Vetris still under construction Alla Spina and Joe Volpe's Vie catering hall, brings new life to the somewhat underutilized stretch of Broad Street just north of the Pennsylvania Convention Center and just south of Fairmount Ave. Grub got a peek at the place Friday while Starr and Route 6 executive chef Anthony DiRienzo were conducting staff training and putting the final touches on the space. The restaurant features a New England-y coastal atmosphere with an outdoor courtyard with picnic table seating for al fresco dining in warmer weather, a bar, raw bar and open kitchen. To get a sense of what to expect, check out our photos straight ahead.
Route 6, 600 North Broad Street, 215-391-4600
