Wow! This is literally a Philly staple, especially in Fairmont! Rose Tattoo Cafe, which is located at 19th & Callowhill since 1983(!!!) has mysteriously closed and no one knows what’s going on!
It was sold to a new owner back in May, but staff was retained, including the longtime chef Alan Lichenstein.
The last day of operation was July 26. A sign on the door reads, “Sorry, temporarily closed due to technical difficulties.” The voicemail at the restaurant is full and its Open Table reservation is switched off.
It’s been in the neighborhood for so long, it would be awful for it to close premaritally.
