Fishtown may be a bit beyond the periphery of your usual travels, but it’s certainly captured the attention of local restaurateurs — including Stephen Starr, who plans to open a beer garden in the neighborhood sometime in October. Adam Ritter, who operates the Sidecar Bar in Graduate Hospital, is the latest owner to travel down Girard Avenue, with his new project, Kraftwork, which opens today at the corner of Girard and Montgomery Avenues. The food menu features the thoughtful pub fare — including a slammin’ “beer can chicken” sandwich with hot peppers — we’ve come to expect from our Philly bars; for drinks, choose from 24 taps and a taut selection of cocktails named for architects and designers. Speaking of designers, take a look at Kraftwork’s unusual industrial-inspired interior, created by sculptor Andrew Jevremovic, in our Kraftwork photo gallery.
