Strangelove’s Beer Bar Names Chef

elephant_FINAL

Strangelove’s is motoring towards its opening. Last week we told you they had replaced the barn door with an honest to god, hinged variety and now they’ve named a chef. Paul Martin, most recently sous chef at Parc and the original chef at Catahoula will be in front of the stoves when Strangelove’s opens.

Martin, who was born in Louisiana and has cooked in Texas, the Pacific Northwest and even had a three year cycling career in France, will bring that wanderlust to Strangelove’s menu. The menu will also be compatible with the desire of co-owners Leigh Maida, Brendan Hartranft and Brendan Kelly to create another affordable and accessible menu that is appealing to vegans/vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

Strangelove’s is looking at an early April opening as they await the liquor license transfer. For more on the recent civic association meeting, check out Philadelphia Real Estate Blog.

    Sounds great, as I love Memphis Taproom! Also, does anyone know when the adjacent, shuttered Santa Fe Burrito Co. will become the Famous Detroit Coney Company, which was announced with some hoopla last September. Or, is that project a no-go?
