PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- By day, Wim Cafe is all about coffee, sweets and breakfast and lunch eats.

Friday and Saturday evenings, it becomes Scampi at Wim Cafe, Liz Grothe's restaurant in the making.

It's a three-month residency where she offers a 5-6 course tasting menu with a different theme each month.

For the month of May, she's offering a Sardinian-focused menu.

For Grothe, it's a chance to drum up interest and money for her brick-and-mortar, opening just a block away in what is now Neighborhood Ramen.

For the new owners of Wim Cafe, Scampi at Wim is a win-win, allowing Grothe to introduce herself to the neighborhood while helping them create a night program at the cafe, which is connected to Yowie Hotel and gift shop.
