Back in April of 2012, we passed along the news that a new dining establishment would be coming to 689-95 N Broad St., a former auto tag place. At that time, we had no idea what kind of business was seeking a variance for a take-out restaurant with outdoor seating, but we figured that no matter what the business it meant positive things for North Broad Street.

In the past

Passing by the other day, we noticed that a new sign has gone up. Check it out.


As you can see, Jimmy G’s Steaks will soon be opening in this space. This will be an upgrade over the previous use, though we can see trash being a possible problem if they’re not vigilant. We do wonder whether this fills a need in the area, as there’s another steak shop two blocks away on Ridge Avenue. Please, though, don’t confuse this spot with another steak and shake place that we mentioned the other day.

The competition. Sign looks similar to the one on Frankford Avenue

Meanwhile, there’s still no progress to report at the Divine Lorraine, across the street from the upcoming steak place. Hopefully, we’ll be able to report something new on this old girl sometime soon… maybe the cheesesteaks will get the ball rolling?
