Hart has signed a deal for 5,218 square feet at White Point Partners’ Salt + Vinegar adaptive-reuse project in the area known as FreeMoreWest, just west of center city.

He plans to move his existing concept, Counter-, from its current spot at 2200 Thrift Road, home to The City Kitch. A sister concept called Biblio is planned. Both are slated to open in August.
