Is Shorty's cheesesteaks connected with Tony Luke's?

Is Shorty's on Ninth Ave. in the spot previously occupied by Tony Luke's still associated with the Philadelphia owner's of that family's sandwich operations? The bartender told me that the name is changed but is still owned by the same people that had Tony Luke's NYC. Can anyone confirm this? It is a nice spot to stop in for an after game meal, but it is not very busy and I never see anyone eating there. The bar atmosphere is way different than the Philly Oregon St. vibe.
