Students in Philly schools can now grab a free breakfast snack that was developed by one of their own — and some of Philly’s top chefs.
It’s been five years since Ambler’s Forest & Main Brewing Co. opened its doors to offer uncommon, terroir-driven beers and elevated pub grub. And they’re celebrating by taking some extra-aged saisons on the road to pair with a special menu at Southwark on May 1st.
It’s the time of year when the deets on soon-to-open beer gardens fly fast and furious. Today, Independence Beer Garden in Old City dropped its start date, drinks list, and menu. And the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced its plans for two pop-ups: its flagship near 15th and South and a new University City spot at 36th and Filbert.
The family behind Baltimore Avenue’s Eritrean restaurant and bar Dahlak is working with a neighborhood-based developer to open Pentridge Station, a family-friendly pop-up beer garden and social space, in southwest Cedar Park.
The Catbird Seat is one of Nashville’s most highly lauded restaurant experiences: diners sit at a U-shaped bar and watch chef Ryan Poli and his team turn out their meal, serving bites and chatting about ingredients during service. We have our own version of that at Serpico, but, obviously, Peter Serpico’s style of cooking is vastly different from Poli’s. So for the real Catbird Seat experience, you’ll have to spend the time and money to travel all the way to Tennessee.
Or you can just pop over to Vetri’s private dining room on May 8th.
We’ve never met a foodstuff that didn’t taste more delicious encased in a wonton wrapper and deep fried. Lucky for us, Glenside-based Humpty’s Dumplings is setting up a city outpost in Queen Village.
Every spring, beer gardens pop like cherry blossoms across Philadelphia in vacant lots, historic sites, and parks. These sometimes controversial spots provide spaces to gather outdoors and enjoy the warm weather over a frosty beverage.
Philly’s (and the world’s) tallest, SkyGarten — which looms 51 stories above street level — has reopened for a second season of German-inspired festivity in the Sky Philadelphia space atop 3 Logan Square (1717 Arch Street).
(Also, we hate to burst your bubble—but it’s just a coincidence that we’re posting this headline on 4/20. Only legal substances are served at SkyGarten.)
Move over, affogato. Be gone, boozy milkshakes. Plenty Cafe has introduced a new way to get that bittersweet fix.
Philly’s love affair with cheese curds is showing up in Fishtown: The poutine-centric Shoo Fry will open its second location in Fishtown at 200 East Girard Avenue on Thursday.
After testing the Canadian-born concept with a six-month pop-up stint at the King of Prussia Mall in 2013, owners Matt and Rachel Baiada opened Shoo Fry’s permanent location in Rittenhouse last year.
Stargazy, the East Passyunk British pie shop that made our Philly’s Best Pies list back in January, has played host to guest chefs like Will BYOB’s Chris Kearse and Aldine’s George Sabatino before. This week, chef-owner Sam Jacobson plays host to yet more of his chef friends: Vetri’s kitchen crew and Opa’s Bobby Saritsoglou.
