David Ansill has quite the story (much of which we’ve chronicled): back in Philadelphia after his repose in Jamaica, he’s brought great food and drink to Bar Ferdinand, and now he’s taking on the kitchen at the Good King Tavern, alongside chef de cuisine Mike Blau.
But here’s the tricky part. He’s not leaving Bar Ferdinand to go to Good King. He’s actually going to be overseeing things at both places.
Running this double-duty seems kind of crazy, if you ask us. But then again, from the looks of things he seems to be handling it rather well: with a new menu and events in the works this month, the Good King is already getting a makeover under Ansill’s command.
Will the balancing act last? Who knows. But for now, details and a menu after the jump.

The Good King Tavern is back with a second Jardins de Provence wine dinner on Wednesday, May 20th. And the news gets better as the price is dropping from $95 to $65. Granted, the dinner will be a bit less grandiose; four wines, paired by a plate (amuse, opener, entree, dessert), but good food and drink on a Wednesday night is always appreciated.
The Jardins de Provence showcases natural French wines paired with chef Paul Lyons’ cooking. This month Sean Faeth of Artisan’s Cellar and Chloe Grigri of the Good King will be pouring and talking wines.
The dinner will be held at 7:30 pm along the back banquette at a single long table. Reserve your space now.
