The fling-out windows and sidewalk dining remain.

New in Manayunk
Tom Konidaris is retooling his Manayunk mainstay, Zesty's (4382 Main St.), into Munk & Nunn, a Mediterranean-influenced gastropub serving small and medium plates - most priced under $20. Opening will be May 8. Focal point will be the 30-seat, granite-top bar accompanied by refinished church pews, paintings of European churches, a wrought-iron gate, and a video screen. Konidaris acknowledges that at age 67 - and with nearly 40 years owning Philly restaurants - he could have packed it in. But he's decided to hang in there.
Gary Dorfman is moving Jake's Philadelphia Cheesesteaks from the Liberty Place food court into a new storefront at 122 S. 12th St., off the corner of 12th and Sansom. With Sean Stein (ex-Red Sky and Pearl), he will open Jake's Sandwich Board on May 10, a seven-day sandwich operation that will include a whole roasted pig on a carving station. Sandwiches will be offered as "haystacks" (on a stack of fries), as salad bowls atop a house salad with dressing, and as "naked bowls" (sans roll). Dorfman's finale at Liberty Place will be 4 p.m. Friday.
