Get ready to say goodbye to the big communal table at Fork Etc.. Ellen Yin is converting the casual next door neighbor of Fork into High Street on Market. The new concept will feature the food of chef Eli Kulp from morning to evening. The menu will change often to showcase of-the-moment-ingredients. Kulp promises something for adventurous eaters at dinner in family-style dishes that use the best ingredients he can get, plus techniques like fermenting and brining to pull all the flavor out of every ingredient.
For breakfast, High Street on Market will offer breakfast sandwiches, as well as savory and sweet pastries. Rival Bros. Coffee will be provided in the restaurants brand new La Marzocco coffee machine.
At lunch, artisanal sandwiches, salads, pastas and more will be dominate the menu. The on-site bakery will also provide a new list of house-made breads that will be used on the sandwiches and be available for sale.
A drink list will focus on hand-crafted drinks made using house-made shrubs and infused liquors.
Managing High Street on Market as well as Fork is newly appointed Paul Rodriguez. Before returning to Fork (where he had been an assistant wine director), Rodriguez made a name for himself in the front of the house at Village Whiskey and Tinto.
High Street on Market will feature a completely renovated look. Natural wood walls, church pew seating and subway tile walls be trimmed blue painted wainscoating and windows. A walk-up counter will be available for walk-in service throughout the day. A map of the Philadelphia area depicting the inspiration for many of Kulp’s dishes will be on the wall.
