Philly Eats All The Chickens: BonChon Crippled By Demand

Seriously? It’s like you people have never seen fried chicken before.

The lines, the waits, the epic crowds–all of this has served to throw a big, chicken-smelling wrench into the grand opening plans at BonChon in Chinatown. First, they had to scale back their hours so they could focus on their dinner crowds during the grand opening weekend–dumping lunch service entirely and opening at 5pm. Then they made that schedule temporarily permanent, announcing that, for the time being, the hours were going to be 5pm-11pm only. That schedule still stands, and today they’ve had to scale back even more.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor coming to 218 N 13th Street.

Two new openings in Chinatown are so close, you can just about taste them. BonChon opens Wednesday, February 18th at 11 a.m. at 1020 Cherry Street. They’re calling it a soft-opening with a limited menu, but rest assured, there will be Korean fried chicken. The full menu will be available the next day.

Next up will be Nom Wah Tea Parlor opening at 218 N 13th Street. The historic New York dim sum restaurant is opening “after the Chinese New Year” which means sometime after February 19th.

Winter Restaurant Openings That Have Us Excited

We’ve already seen several impressive rebirths this year. Hawthorne’s has reopened after a blaze forced the beer cafe and bruncherie to close for almost a year, and they’re now offering beer delivery. Jose Garces has opened the Olde Bar at Bookbinders. The most impressive thing about this Olde Bar might be how little has actually changed. Even the plaques dedicated to faithful customers of Old Orignal Bookbinders remain. Earlier this week, the old Frankie Bradley’s, a well-known restaurant that fed the stars for 50+ years at 13th and Chancellor reopened as Franky Bradley’s. It’s now a nostalgic and sexy bar and restaurant from Silk City’s Mark Bee.

Not bad for the slowest time of year for restaurants.
