If you’re ever in West Philadelphia, be sure to experience 720 West Bistro Restaurant & Jazz Lounge! Co-owner, Eric Bonaparte, a native Philadelphian, is very proud of this new endeavor. Having been in the restaurant/entertainment industry for over 20 years, with experience managing Booker’s and Aksum restaurants and working with Philly’s own Bynum Brothers, this hidden jewel is his pride and joy. The bistro opened its doors just a year ago in October and has since been thriving, offering tasty bites and delicious drinks. Being a black-owned business on S. 52nd Street, Eric was definitely ahead of the game in terms of choosing the location which is one of the city’s up and coming areas. Just last weekend, 720 West Bistro was one of the participating venues on the Katika Black Bar Crawl, hosting over 100 “crawlers” with excellent customer service.
