Barley and Hops on the 3900 block of Walnut Street, formerly O'Hara's, opened this summer with a menu similar to O'Hara's. The menu offers a daily lunch special with 14 dishes under $4 and a 10-minute lunch guarantee. Barley and Hops General Manager Joe Rotella said that the restaurant features a Monday night football promotion with $1 beers and all-you-can eat buffalo wings and hot dogs part of an effort to drum up business in the University community. And the Chestnut Street Bar and Grill, a popular campus bar, was replaced this summer by The Brass Rail, located at 39th and Chestnut Streets. Manager Laverne Pierce said the restaurant caters to business people and local residents more than students. Every Saturday and Sunday night The Brass Rail features a different jazz band, which Pierce says has attracted a lot of business. All-you-can-eat lasagna and buffalo wings nights are also featured.
