The Marina: Pretty much right on schedule, Bistro Yoffi has closed its doors for the last time. The interior is currently being dismantled, and the goodbye message thanks all the Yoffi customers, promises that the restaurant closed on its own accord, and proclaims that they are now out. of. business.
Of course, with Yoffi's shuttering, on the way for 2231 Chestnut is the "American gastropub" by Vintage 415, the group behind Mamacita, Umami and Blue Barn that is steadily taking over the Marina. A full renovation is planned, with the sizable outdoor area being the centerpiece, but given the extensive remodel, the project is still a ways away.
