Bryan Mayer, the head butcher at Fishtown’s Kensington Quarters has parted ways with the restaurant/bar/butcher shop/classroom. The departure has been described as amicable by owner Michael PasquarelloHeather Thomason has been promoted to head butcher.

Before Kensington Quarters, Mayer had consulted with butcher shops and trained butchers across the country and around the world. Mayer lectured at New York’s Culinary Institute of American and has run workshops on slaughter and butchering. Mayer describes himself as a “free agent” on Facebook.




Thomason was part of the opening team at Kensington Quarters and Pasquarello tells us, "Heather has years of experience working on farms, with food co-ops and in butcher shops. She also teaches butchering classes here at Kensington Quarters."

Speaking of Kensington Quarters classes, butchery and sausage making classes are scheduled throughout the summer. As for Mayer, we hope he adds another butcher shop to Philadelphia, though preferably not in Fishtown. That part of town can't have a monopoly on cool stuff.

Shroom Dinner at Kensington Quarters

KQS_Mushroom_2[1]

I was always warned against eating mushrooms because ” like, that stuff will blow your mind, man.” But on Thursday, April 30th, Kensington Quarters is partnering with Mycopolitan Mushroom Co. to prepare a 5-course, $75 per person (with wine pairings), mushroom themed dinner (don’t worry- it’s the normal kind of mushrooms. Disappointed? Join the club.)

Mycopolitan Mushroom Co., which wins the award for most fun name to say out loud, is located in Fishtown (right near Kensington Quarters) and is actually Philadelphia’s first mushroom farm. A representative from Mycopolitan will be at the dinner so you can get all your burning mushroom questions answered.




The menu includes mushrooms in each course and because it is spring, ramps; and because it is Kensington Quarters, filet mignon.
