Happy 5th birthday to Kraftwork. Tonight, June 23rd, the Fishtown bar is honoring its loyal patrons in style. Help them celebrate all day and night with draft beers, vintage bottles, dinner specials, live music and birthday cake.
Booze is served from open to close, dinner starts at 5 pm, music comes on at 7, and birthday cake (provided by Kermit’s Bakeshop) is somewhere in between.
Read on for the full draft list and "upscale bbq" inspired menu.
Chef Brian Lofink is understandably very excited by his latest special at Kraftwork. Last night I had his chicken fried sweetbreads and waffle, with Crystal’s ramps and maple demi glace. The dish is an excellent balance of sweet and savory. The perfectly fried sweetbreads will turn any offal novice into a gluton, demanding “more organs now!”
Lofink has the sweetbreads on special this weekend at the Fishtown bar and he says, “Im not scared to say I’ll stack it up to any sweetbread dish in the city and knock it down.”
Rob Mitchell, owner of the Cow and the Curd has been working with Drexel University’s Food Lab to get his cheese curds out to the masses.
The Curd Caprese Salad, served with classic curds, basil aioli, aged balsamic vinegar, oven dried tomatoes and micro basil salad will be available for a limited time only. So get out there and get yours while you can.
The curd salad will also be available at the Sidecar Bar & Grille starting next Friday, April 24th.
I was lucky enough to try the "salad" yesterday with some friends and it was a hit. Just one word of advice, don't pop the whole curd in your mouth at once, bite halfway through and stretch that curd out. It just makes it even better.
