PorcSalt’s Matt Ridgway Opening General Store/French Bistro

 

Cafe at Rosemont

 PorcSalt’s Matt Ridgway (formerly chef de cuisine at Lacroix) has been crafting more than bacon. He’s turning his fledgling charcuterie business into a general store-meets-French-bistro concept called The Pass in Rosemeont, NJ (which is 5 miles from New Hope). Housed in a renovated farmhouse, that was most recently the Cafe at Rosemont, he’ll make, smoke, age and sell his charcuterie by day, and turn the shop into a restaurant at night, which will be like a modern French roadhouse of sorts, and also serve Sunday brunch. Charcuterie operation will be up and running in February, with the restaurant following in the spring.

    His meat is good, but that is a bit of a hike for me. Good luck to him

    Nice to have that space occupied by an impressive alternative to the crowded Lambertville/New Hope scene.
