Things are happening on the Delaware Riverfront. Friday, November 29th is the official opening of The Lodge at Waterfront Winterfest with chef George Sabatino in the kitchen. Winterfest is a new seasonal experience that includes the RiverRink, a holiday craft market curated by Art Star Craft Bazaar, landscaping by Groundswell Design Group, the team behind the PHS Pop-up beer garden and the Lodge, a heated and tented structure made exclusively of shipping containers that will be serving up a entertainment, light fare and seasonal cocktails for 500 people.
Sabatino will be creating a menu representative of the season with a focus on holiday classics and locally-sourced ingredients. Highlights include:
- Smoked Turkey Legs
- Sweet Potato and Kale Pocket Pies
- Mashed Potato Fritters
- Homemade Fudge
- Chocolate Covered Popcorn
- Hand-Dipped Caramel Apples
- Caramelized Pumpkin Donuts
Also on the Winterfest grounds will be other concessions. The Winter Garden area will feature sandwiches provided by Scott Schroeder of American Sardine Bar and multiple food carts featuring cookies from Cookie Confidential, hot dogs, breakfast sausage patties and roasted peanuts.
The Lodge will also feature seasonal craft beers on tap and holiday drinks including:
- Warm Mulled Apple Cider
- Spiked Chai Tea
- Old Fashioned Hot Cocoa
All drinks will also be available in non-alcoholic versions.
The Lodge opens for a sneak preview on November 27th with a DJ set from James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. Food will be available on the official opening day of Waterfront Winterfest, Friday November 29th.
