Birra Restaurant In Passyunk Square

Passyunk Square Real EstateBirra Restaurant in Passyunk Square

The long-awaited latest addition to East Passyunk Avenue, is officially open.

Located at the crossroads of Passyunk Avenue, 12th Street and Morris Street, Birra is a casual 85-seat brick oven pizza and craft beer joint serving an eclectic menu courtesy of consulting chef Shola Olunloyo.

Owner Gordon Dinerman, previously at City Tap House, Buddakan and Barclay Prime, has established an innovative approach to topping Birra’s thin-crust pizzas. Everything on the menu is available as a pizza topping.

That means you can take the meatballs from the meatball gratin appetizer, and pair them with, say, wild mushrooms. Or else match up locally cured salumis with roasted peppers. It all is served atop sweet, home-made sauce and mozzarella cheese. Bonus: Dinerman is sourcing locally grown and seasonal ingredients for his farm-to-table menu.

Specializing in Gourmet Pizzas

And as an at­tempt to up­date the piz­za-and-beer par­a­digm, Birra is, in con­cept, a charm­er. With its cor­ner windows slung open to side­walk seat­ing, cheery hues of pas­tel green on the walls, ma­hog­a­ny wood-slat banquettes, and red ze­brawood tabletops ringing the cen­tral bar, Birra embodies the youth­ful but styl­ish spir­it that’s surging along the now ful­ly revived “Avenue.” Add in small plates and char­cu­te­rie platters for start­ers and a big list of craft beers, and Birra is spring-load­ed to wel­come the thirsty masses of tattooed hipsters that have now made “E’Punk” both their home and a des­ti­na­tion. It isn’t un­com­mon to find families there, be­fore the late-night crowd flows in. And those crowds have been so steady — many of them spilling off the mar­ga­ri­ta-splashed side­walk be­side Can­ti­na Los Caballitos — that I sus­pect the underwhelming qual­i­ty of the pizzas will not be a de­ter­rent to Birra’s suc­cess.
