New Chef for Resurrection Ale House

Fear not, the fried chicken will not be lost.

Leigh Maida and Brendan Hartranft are bringing in their first executive chef at Local 44 this fall and that isn’t the only chef news coming from the couple behind Local 44, Memphis Taproom and Resurrection Ale House.

Resurrection’s chef Joe Chmiko is moving to New York City and Rhett Vellner, already on the staff at the Graduate Hospital bar and restaurant is stepping in as executive chef.

As Vellner adjusts to his new role, the menu will feature some of Resurrection’s favorite dishes including Philadelphia magazine’s Best of Philly 2011 pork sandwich.
