Sbraga and Fat Ham UC Close Suddenly

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/the-insider/Sbraga-closes-Sbraga-and-The-Fat-Ham-in-University-City.html

Looks like Sbraga closed his eponymous restaurant and his University City location of Fat Ham (although the KoP location of Fat Ham remains).

It seems these closings came without notice and answers are not forthcoming from the principals. These were popular and well-reviewed restaurants. It would be interesting to know what really happened here.

Whoa. Just saw this now. I celebrated my birthday at Sbraga a few years ago. Still think of that amuse of foie gras soup & gruyère popover, tho I wasn’t too impressed with the rest of the meal.

Maybe because I went to Vernick the following evening (for the first time ever), and it’s since become my favorite restaurant in Philly. Cheaper than Sbraga, too :slight_smile:
