South Philly neighbors mourning August, the Italian BYOB that sat in the cozy corner spot at 13th and Wharton from 2003 to 2017, might be in luck. The building is getting a new tenant and it’s another Italian BYOB, this one named Burrata.

Restaurants run in the family. Furxhiu’s older brother, Florian, is taking some heat for his upcoming taco shop, opening at Broad and Lombard on January 20. People aren’t happy with the name he chose: Illegal Tacos.
