According to Craig Laban, if the Farm & Fisherman Tavern & Market can get the pricing under control–and if chef-owner Josh Lawler can find a balance between his farm-to-table impulses and being able to provide the kind of food people want to eat for the amount of money they want to pay–then South Jersey might just have another winner on its hands.
The Tavern is moved by the same go-local hands-on spirit, obvious from the shelves of Collingswood-roasted coffee, multihued eggs, and fridge cases of house-made sausages and terrines in the market. But the end goal of the Tavern involves a bigger challenge: to break down its whole animals, devotion to seasonality, and dedication to scratch cooking at a neighborhood-friendly price point that might actually pry someone away from their frozen Happy Hour BahamaRitas at the mall.

The Philadelphia Eagles are celebrating their 80th anniversary this season and are celebrating with the launch of their own wine.”Rollout” is a 2011 cabernet sauvignon sourced from the Napa Valley and Dry Creek.
The wine will be on sale throughout the Philadelphia area at Pennsylvania liquor stores as well as at southern New Jersey retailers. The wine will also be available for purchase on the club level and in suites at Lincoln Financial Field. We’re sure it will go great with Marc Vetri’s North Philadelphia sausage cheesesteak.
Eagles Senior Vice President of Business, Ari Roitman says the bottle is “a nice way for fans to celebrate four generations strong of Eagles football whether they enjoy it with friends and family over dinner or save it as a keepsake.”
