Philadelphia music icon Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson announced that Hybird, his and Stephen Starr’s new restaurant, will be opening this Saturday, May 18, in New York City’s Chelsea Market. The gourmet fast food restaurant will feature Questlove’s famous “Love’s Drumsticks,” truffled egg dumplings, tom yum cupcakes, and watermelon-jalapeño “Love Slush,” among other things.
Few things are more Philly than Questlove and Starr, so its a shame this place isn’t opening locally. But it is worth noting that Questlove recently followed a number of Philadelphia food accounts on twitter, so maybe Questlove is planning on bringing Hybird to Philly soon.
