Root, the Fishtown wine bar, and Jason Wilson, author of Boozehound, are teaming up like some kind of drunken Voltron to present “Planet of the Grapes” — a series of wine classes which will teach you all you ever wanted to know about orange wine, bubbly, pairing with Thanksgiving dinner and more.
The classes happen every other Saturday at Root, and you can book them individually — so if you don’t care about the wines of central Italy or already know everything about Portugese wine, you don’t have to go to those classes.
And of course, we have the schedule.
The team behind Fishtown’s restaurant and wine bar, ROOT, is doubling down on Frankford with an absolutely enormous three-headed monster of a concept called Suraya (say it “suh-RAY-ah”): part Lebanese restaurant, part Levantine market, part-outdoor garden inside a 10,000 sq. ft. space at 1528 Frankford Avenue.
Got brunch plans for this weekend? Well if you don’t, let us make a late suggestion. Root–the new-ish tapas and wine bar in Fishtown–just launched a brunch program last weekend. It’s actually a very straightforward list–lots of eggs, some lemon-ricotta pancakes, french toast, a cauliflower salad for those of you being healthy and lots of bacon for those of you who aren’t–but that’s not a bad thing. And the Turkish eggs and duxelle burger both sound more than a little bit awesome.
Anyway, we’ve got the full menu after the jump. Check it out below.
