According to Craig Laban, if the Farm & Fisherman Tavern & Market can get the pricing under control–and if chef-owner Josh Lawler can find a balance between his farm-to-table impulses and being able to provide the kind of food people want to eat for the amount of money they want to pay–then South Jersey might just have another winner on its hands.
The Tavern is moved by the same go-local hands-on spirit, obvious from the shelves of Collingswood-roasted coffee, multihued eggs, and fridge cases of house-made sausages and terrines in the market. But the end goal of the Tavern involves a bigger challenge: to break down its whole animals, devotion to seasonality, and dedication to scratch cooking at a neighborhood-friendly price point that might actually pry someone away from their frozen Happy Hour BahamaRitas at the mall.
Two Bells — Very Good
Farm And Fisherman Tavern & Market Review [Philadelphia Inquirer]
Farm And Fisherman Tavern & Market [f8b8z]
Josh Lawler has made a name for himself in Philly with his postage-stamp-sized BYOB on Pine Street. Everything is fresh because there isn’t enough room for a freezer. But now with his second restaurant—the awkwardly named Farm & Fisherman Tavern + Market—Lawler has plenty of room to spread out. The Cherry Hill outpost is a 150-seat bar and restaurant that also boasts an attached market. Unfortunately you won’t find many of the dishes he’s doing in Midtown Village here in Jersey. (The menu is definitely more accessible, but it would be wrong to call it dumbed-down.) Offerings change continuously, but expect burgers, sandwiches, and a host of local ingredients. If you spot a steak among the supper plates, jump on it. It might be the best you have all year.
