The Fat Ham’s Decor Is As Country As Its Kitchen

Mismatched crockery, old wooden chairs, vintage knick-knacks all give the new restaurant a farmhouse feeling.

Today, the 40-plus-seat Fat Ham in University City — owned by Philadelphia’s Top Chef season 7 winner Kevin Sbraga — opens to the public. The venue’s interior appears to be an homage to farmhouse life: photographs of freshly pulled vegetables; tableware with mismatched plates; wooden tables and old wooden chairs; vintage kitchen equipment; and piggy trinkets scattered on shelves as if they’re in a bankbarn flea market.

The cowhide print is a more modern touch, and then, of course, there’s the large pink pig printed screen-printed onto a subway tile wall. Sounds like the food is just as fresh and homey.
