Native Philadelphian Johncarl Lachman is coming home to Philadelphia to open Noord, a BYOB on East Passyunk Avenue. Tuesday night, Samuel Sherman, executive director of the East Passyunk Revitalization Corporation gave members of the media a preview of the Noord space. It still looks very raw inside but Sherman asures us that the 40-plus-seat restaurant with open kitchen will be ready to open the first week of May.
The design of the restaurant will be slightly reminiscent of Fond’s redo (especially the exterior), also an East Passyunk Revitalization project but will feature a large communal table down the middle of restaurant. Lachman will cook and interact with guests from Noord’s open kitchen. Outdoor seating will also be available.
The food will be Northern European, focusing on everything from bitterballen, braised and fried pork meatballs, to Konijn in het Zuur, rabbit leg confit, wild boar belly, baby turnips and zuurkool (Dutch sauerkraut). Brunch will also be a big deal, with a whole section of the brunch menu being dedicated to hashes.
Want to get a sneak peek at what Noord will be offering, the restaurant will be serving at Flavors of the Avenue on Saturday, April 27th.
