Got rosé taste but an André budget? Get yourself to East Passyunk for tomorrow evening. The French-focused Fond is offering a can’t-miss deal at their outside tables, high-tops, and bar: Every Tuesday, $10 gets you a glass of rosé and a half-dozen fresh-shucked oysters.
East Passyunk Avenue is hosting its own restaurant week starting on Sunday, February 21st and running through Saturday, February 27th. The week of deals on Philadelphia’s hottest restaurant stretch come in three flavors. There are $15, $25 and $35 options that are available for lunch/brunch or dinner. Of the 24 restaurants participating six of the restaurants participating are in Philadelphia magazine’s latest 50 Best Restaurants list.
Fond enjoyed an early August vacation and now chef Lee Styer, pastry chef Jessie Prawlucki and front of the house manager Tory Keomanivong are back and showing off a new summer menu, plus a featured dish of the month.
Among the new dishes are tuna poke with yellowtail and albacore tuna served with soy, black sesame, pineapple, cucumber, toasted coconut; scallops with summer squash, fregola sarda, piquillo pepper sauce; and more.
The new featured dish for August is shrimp with watermelon, feta, micro basil and a smoked paprika aioli. The dish is described as smoky but bright and refreshing at the same time. It’s available now as an appetizer.
Fond can be enjoyed a la carte or via five ($59) or seven course ($69) tasting menus.
