Got a note yesterday from Anthony Gualtieri, GM of the not-yet-open American small-plates restaurant (and whiskey bar) Stateside at 1536 East Passyunk Avenue. He let me know that owners William Bonforte and Stephen Slaughter (from Green Eggs Cafe) have gotten their liquor license approved and are just waiting for the final inspections to come in (due this week), which will put the place on track for an opening “no later than the middle of November.”
One thing that’s still coming together? Chef George Sabatino’s menu. But that’s going to be taken care of this weekend since the former Barbuzzo chef will be doing a 6-course pop-up tasting this weekend at the South Philly Green Eggs. It’s $55 per person, with two seatings scheduled for Saturday night. Check out the menu after the jump.
The best thing about that board (which you can click on if you need a larger image)? Those three cocktails are on the house, and the owners are also going to have a barman on hand offering complimentary tastings of the “exclusively domestic spirits” that’ll be showcased behind the bar.
There are currently spaces available for both seatings on Saturday, and you can either email Statesside at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Green Eggs at 215-226-3447 for more details and reservations.
