Fond Turns Five

Opening night at Fond's current location.

Opening night at Fond’s current location.

Hard to believe that Fond is already five years old. But when you figure they’ve already moved, added a liquor license, a marriage and a baby, it’s kind of hard to believe it has only been five years.

Join Lee Styer, his wife Jesse Prawlucki and partner Tory Keomanivong at their East Passyunk restaurant as they celebrate this milestone by offering a Sparkling Celebration Cocktail and bar snacks for just $5 all week.


The Fond team has also rolled out their late summer menu complete with rock shrimp ceviche, heirloom tomato salad and skate wing with corn risotto.
