Zento Contemporary | Chef Sam Ho has moved Zento, his sushi BYO open since 2006, three doors down to the former home of Grey Social. Now partnered with Grey's Darin Picorella, the new-look restaurant boasts two floors and a liquor license, which will allow them to serve sake, shochu, wine, beer and cocktails. The kitchen's still waiting on their exhaust hood; once that comes in, expect the menu to expand dramatically to feature many new hot dishes, including several types of ramen. In fact, Ho and Picorella say they're currently scouting locations for a separate restaurant concept called Ramen Room. Zento, meanwhile, is open for lunch weekdays and daily for dinner, with late-night options Friday and Saturday. More on Meeal Ticket. 138 Chestnut St., 215-925-9998, zentocontemporary.com.
