Oloroso takes risks that add vision in Philadelphia

“Whereas fino and amontillado sherries are typically bright, oloroso, the most aged of the three, is deep and dark, nutty and complex. It’s a fitting name for the third restaurant from Townsend Wentz.”

Vibe is buzzy, and the place to be is the mahogany bar

Chef Townsend Wentz, Gordana Kostovski, and their crew have opened Oloroso, a muy guapo Spanish tapas specialist, at 1121 Walnut St., where it shares a bustling Washington Square West block with the Irish Pub, Moriarty’s, Caribou Cafe, Bareburger, Destination Dogs, Spicy Memory, and Matt & Marie’s.
