600-n-broad-liquor-licenseAn orange liquor license application spotted at the former Route 6 has revealed that Robert and Benjamin Bynum are opening a restaurant at the corner of Broad and Mt. Vernon Streets. The Bynums previously owned Zanzibar Blue in the basement of the Bellevue years ago. The new restaurant will feature Southern food and live jazz. But when I spoke with partner Harry Hayman earlier, he explained it will certainly not be a return of Zanzibar.

The plan is to feature national jazz acts, grabbing headliners who might be performing in New York to come down to Philadelphia during the week. The restaurant ...
