Pulling this announcement from a Fishtown discussion group and public school parent Micah Hanson. Awesome news for Hackett. "We learned about a week ago (and were okayed to release the news yesterday) that Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School has been chosen as the site for the Philadelphia Eagles Playground Build. The Philadelphia Eagles made the announcement to the students and staff yesterday at Hackett. Principal Kimmel, the Hackett staff, Friends Of Hackett and many tremendous partners have been working for 5 years to revitalize this barren asphalt yard. The Philadelphia Water Department has already committed $1.3 million to construct a massive stormwater management system including rain gardens and other elements (construction start TBD). The PTSSD granted the funds for the decorative gateway now ornamenting the entrance at York and Sepviva. This latest news from the Eagles will allow us to realize a large portion of the rest of the plan. Details are evolving, but the Eagles will provide play equipment, surfacing, a turf field, and other accessories while the Mural Arts Philadelphia will be installing a mural covering a significant chunk of the building facing the yard. This will all happen pretty quickly so expect big changes soon!"

New restaurants heat up the Philly region

“Right after Memorial Day” is what management suggests for Nunu (1414 Frankford Ave.), the Japanese bar next to Cheu Fishtown.

Aether, a Fishtown outpost of Princeton/KoP’s Mistral and Elements, is looking at summer at 1832 Frankford Ave.

This article has 21 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Chalaco’s, a Peruvian restaurant-lounge specializing in pisco cocktails and ceviche and other seafood at 1030 N. Second St. (Liberties Walk) in Northern Liberties, has set April 17 as the premiere. Owners are from the Baltimore area.

Love City Brewing Co., in a former warehouse at 1023 Hamilton St., behind Union Transfer, has set its opening for April 19; eight beers will be on...

...990 Spring Garden St., will pop midsummer with Edwin Social, an outdoor Mediterranean restaurant, at 1033 Spring Garden St., and, in the fall, a branch of the Lucky Well, a barbecue specialist based in...

Ardiente, a flashy Latin/Asian hybrid at 33 S. Second St. in Old City, is undergoing its final tweaks for a late-April opening.

Old City also will have Glory Beer Bar, run by alums of the now-shuttered Eulogy, at 126 Chestnut St., where Mad River was.

Ardmore is expected to get two newcomers in the next two weeks: Ripplewood Whiskey & Craft will be what’s billed as a two-story “throwback Americana gastro-bar” at 29 E. Lancaster Ave.

The Bercy, a luxe French destination at the former Primavera Pizza Kitchen (7 E. Lancaster Ave.), could become the Parc of the Main Line.

Cider houses will rule this spring. I hear May for the openings of both Hale & True (613 S. Seventh St., Bella Vista) and Kurant Cider (436 E. Girard Ave., Fishtown).

Attico, a rooftop restaurant/lounge at the new Cambria Hotel, 219 S. Broad St., near Locust. Del Frisco’s Grille is expected to open on the Cambria’s ground floor this fall.

Brickwall Tavern, backing up to sibling restaurant Porta (1214 Chestnut St.) but with an entrance on Sansom Street across from Fergie’s Bar, is targeting May 4.

ElMerkury, a Central American street-food specialist, will be at 2104 Chestnut St., replacing Agno Grill.

Koreana, a casual Korean fast-casual now in University City, is planning a branch at 37 S. 19th St., replacing MilkHouse.

Main & Vine, a California-theme bistro replacing Avenue Kitchen at 789 E. Lancaster Ave. in Villanova, is expected to open before Mother’s Day.

Harper’s Garden, a wine garden set beneath a pergola, is looking at spring at 31 S. 18th St., placing it near nightspots, including Continental Mid-town, Concourse Dance Bar, and Uptown Beer Garden.

TALK, the new-American spinoff of West Philadelphia’s Marigold Kitchen, should open in May at 2121 Walnut St.

“End of spring” is the target for the Finch, the Mediterranean bistro from chef Jennifer Carroll at the Warwick Hotel (220 S. 17th St.).

Roxborough, meanwhile, is several months from the debut of White Yak (6118 Ridge Ave.), which likely will be the city’s first Nepalese restaurant. Figures that this is the...

Bourse Marketplace will assemble dozens of food stalls at the Bourse, on Fifth Street south of Market Street, by midsummer.

Giuseppe & Sons, an Italian concept from the Termini baking family and Michael Schulson, is up for summer next to Harp & Crown on the 1500 block of Sansom Street.

Pizzeria Beddia, whose recent closing on Girard Avenue wound up as front-page news, has secured a location on Lee Street near Front Street; its opening as a sitdowner with bar is projected for fall.

    New restaurants heat up the Philly region
    French, Italian, Peruvian, cideries, outdoor experiences. A new restaurant at the Bok Building in South Philadelphia for you lovers of peak views. And speaking of peaks: How about more Nepalese cuisine? A look at my list of pending bar and restaurant projects shows more than three dozen scheduled openings in the Philadelphia region in the next 75 days or so.
