The Gaslight Pairs Up with Franklin Fountain and Dad’s Hat

the-gaslight-sign-940

It’s an Old City collaboration with the Gaslight’s Jason Cichonski and The Franklin Fountain’s Eric and Ryan Berley. The four-course dinner will pair Cichonski’s food with the hot drinking chocolates developed by the Berley brothers. The dinner takes place on Thursday, December 18th and costs $45 per person. A Dad’s Hat cocktail pairing will be available for an additional $25.

Though Cichonski has taken a critical beating recently at the Gaslight, $45 is a reasonable price for the dinner and if you’ve had a Franklin Fountain drinking chocolate, you’ve wanted to have a reason to have several. So here’s your chance.

Laban Gives One Bell To The Gaslight For Its “Flicker Of Hope”

Gaslight07

Ouch.

Over the weekend, Craig Laban finally dropped the hammer on Jason Cichonski’s Old City tavern, The Gaslight, giving serious consideration to handing out zero bells, but finally offering the arguable mercy of a single bell in recognition of the fact that Cichonski apparently already knows how badly his restaurant sucks.

But chef-owner Jason Cichonski is the one here with the jittery hand. The poor fellow’s nerves have gotten the best of him as we speak on the phone, and his voice oozes the dread of self-recognition – without any prompting on my part – that things have not gone as hoped with his second restaurant, even nine months after opening: “I’m going to have to take this one on the chin.”
