Traditional South Philly Italian cooking lands in Rittenhouse starting Tuesday, Nov. 27 with the opening of Giuseppe & Sons (1523 Sansom St.), a joint project by Michael Schulson and his wife, Nina Tinari, along with the Termini Bros. pastry family. Next door to the Schulsons' Harp & Crown, it’s two restaurants in one. At 14,000 square feet, it’s a massive one -- among the largest new Center City restaurants since Harp & Crown’s opening two years ago.

At street level, through a revolving door, Giuseppe & Sons is a daytime luncheonette (open at the outset from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays) with a counter serving chicken parm, veal parm, meatball sandwiches, roast pork, salads, and Termini desserts. Seating for 67 people includes booths, tables, and bar stool at the full bar, though they’re also counting on takeout business.
