Co-owner Valerie Safran, a former 8th grade Spanish teacher, also grew up in the Midwest and runs the front of house/financial operations for all of the pairs restaurants as well as their 3 boutiques (Open House, Verde and Grocery). Chef Turney and Safran have been working since 2002 to help reinvent 13th Street. The pioneering duo's eight restaurants and boutiques between Chestnut and Locust Streets have helped transform the once-desolate neighborhood into trendy Midtown Village.
