Bridget Foy Announces Grand Opening of Cry Baby Pasta in Queen Village

Restaurateurs Bridget Foy and husband Paul Rodriguez announce the grand opening of Cry Baby Pasta at 4:00pm today, at 627 S. 3rd Street. Cry Baby Pasta will mark the couple's much-anticipated return to the Philadelphia restaurant scene following the tragic fire that destroyed the original family restaurant named after Bridget at 2nd and South in 2017. While waiting for Bridget Foy's to be rebuilt (with tentative opening this fall) the couple decided to open their first restaurant together - something the couple has dreamed about doing for many years while working with their parents John and Bernadette at Bridget Foy's. Cry Baby Pasta will offer a casual, warm and playful atmosphere with a menu focusing on Italian fare prepared by husband-and-wife team chefs David Gilberg and Carla Goncalves. At the bar look for a deep wine program offering smartly priced wines by the glass an bottle, plus a full bar with craft beer, cocktails and spirits. Opening hours are seven days a week with bar opening daily at 4:00pm and dining room opening at 5:00pm daily. Look for dinner service to start with possible lunch and brunch to follow later. Happy hour will launch in mid winter.
