Philly.com checked in with the progress of the new-look Moorestown Mall, which now houses restaurants such as Osteria as part of its revitalization plan:
"Jeff Benjamin, Marc Vetri's business partner at Vetri Family Restaurants, called his firm's first venture outside Philadelphia a really good move.
'Some publicly traded [mall management companies] get a bad rap about being faceless,' said Benjamin, 'but PREIT's been great to work with. They said they'd bring in boutiques and restaurants and the spa, and they did what they promised.
'It's still a work in progress. It probably won't hit its stride for four or five years,' Benjamin said. But its success with Osteria in Moorestown has Vetri looking to set up its next restaurant in the Washington suburbs."
