We’re always writing about how this restaurant or that restaurant has just decided to get into the brunch game. But Fond, of East Passyunk, is now open on Sundays and isn’t doing brunch.
No, they’re running a new, stripped-down lunch-y / dinner-y kind of thing from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m.. The restaurant will be offering a more casual menu, featuring smaller plates and a plat du jour. Changing specials for Sunday dining, with a family-style, comfort-food feel, are also to be expected.
Fond is cool with drop-ins, but if you want to make reservations, that's cool, too.
Today, OpenTable revealed its Top 100 restaurants “fit for foodies” in America. The list was determined by OpenTable’s analysis of more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country. The list includes twelve restaurants from Philadelphia, the second most restaurants from one city, only Portland, Oregon had more.
The list includes a high concentration of restaurants from California, Oregon and Pennsylvania but not as many from traditional restaurant cities like Chicago (five restaurants), Los Angeles (five), New York (four) and San Francisco (one).
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.
