So remember when we told you about Fork’s Eli Kulp stepping in as a partner at a.kitchen and a.bar in Rittenhouse? Yeah, well it looks like Kulp has had time to look over the space, the set-up and the menu at a.kitchen and decide how he’d like to make his mark.
He’s going to do it by changing just about every single thing about the place.
Okay, maybe not every thing, but he’s certainly changing a lot of it. Like the concept, the basic operating gear of the line and the entire menu. Hell, even the PR people are calling it a “reinvention”.
Over on the Insider, they’re reporting on a deal reached between a.kitchen/a.bar’s David Fields and Ellen Yin and Eli Kulp from Fork. The way things look right now, Fields and Yin are throwing in together at a.kitchen and a.bar, becoming partners in both operations, and Kulp will be taking the position of executive chef–designing menus for an as-yet-unnamed chef de cuisine.
The new Kulp-designed a.kitchen and a.bar menus will debut in March. For more details on how this all came together, check out Michael Klein’s interview with Yin and Fields below.
This Monday, December 9th is going to be all about Sherry at a.bar. Though many people’s only experience with sherry is on the sweet side, there are dry Sherries that work very well with food.
From 3 to 6 p.m., all oysters are $1.50 each and several local wine reps will be pouring multiple Sherries, ranging from $5 to $10 a glass.
At 7 p.m. chef Terence Feury (Tavro 13) will prepare a four-course dinner with Sherry pairings. The dinner is $85 per person and there is only one seating. Contact beverage director, Tim Kweeder for reservations.
