Chef's Table leaves South St. for new catering facility

Georgiou said Chef’s Table now operates out of 18,600 square feet of space at 2900 Grays Ferry Ave., in a former postal distribution center just off the Schuylkill Expressway. It was a $1.5 million investment, he said.

    Chef's Table leaves South St. for new catering facility
    Chef's Table, a presence on South Street for 34 years, has cleared out of its Abbotts Square home in favor of a new catering facility in Grays Ferry. No hard feelings, said George Georgiou, who opened the business at 231 South St. with partner Ed Barranco in the mid-1980s.

    We visited the block yesterday and were sorry to see that construction hasn't started on the project at 3613-19 Sears St., with the boat remaining very much in place. Needless to say, the other vacant lots on the block remain vacant as well. But there's cause for hope!

"The Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia, which handles the city's animal control efforts, is joining with the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society and the Pennsylvania SPCA to create the "Philadelphia No-Kill Coalition." The coalition will seek to end the killing of healthy, treatable and manageable cats and dogs in Philadelphia, which saved about 82 percent of cats and dogs that entered ACCT last year. That's a stark contrast from 2005, when about 89 percent of animals were euthanized. "

One of Philadelphia’s Finest Recognized for His Work in the Community

With his day job as community relations officer at the 1st District, 2301 S. 24th St., Bryson, who resides on the 2600 block of South Front Street with wife Patty, has sacrificed his vacation time to ensure he rarely missed a game.

This article has 5 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Paul Bryson started playing ball at Edward O’Malley Athletic Association, 144 Moore St., at age 5 and coaching at 13. In fact, the whole Bryson clan spent most of its time at the athletic haven.

“It kept the family out of trouble,” the native of the 400 block of Winton Street said. “It was something for us to do in the community.”

As a teen, he refereed hockey at EOM and umpired the summer baseball league at Burke Playground, Second and Jackson streets — in between playing his own hockey, baseball and football games. During the school year, he would try to squeeze in a snooze between school and practice.

“Sometimes I didn’t have a cat nap,” the St. John Neumann High School, 2600 Moore St., and Lincoln Technical Institute grad said. “I’d go right down to football. … I was always on the run from the time I got up to the time I went to bed.”
