Brewer’s Plate is one of our favorite events of the year. The fundraiser for Fair Food Philadelphia pairs local restaurants with local breweries in an event of food and drink sampling.
The list of restaurants for the March 10th event has just been released and as usual, features many of Philadelphia’s best but one name really stood out to us, Royal Sushi & Izakaya. The perpetually delayed Japanese pub project from the team behind the Khyber Pass, Cantinas and Royal Tavern will be one of the featured restaurants.
This will be the first public appearance of Royal Sushi & Izakaya. They’ll be paired with Brooklyn Brewery. Todd Dae Kulper will be on-hand.

Royal Sushi & Izakaya has posted a job opening at Foobooz Jobs for a sushi sous chef. Construction has been ongoing at the long waited for Japanese pub and sushi spot on 2nd Street. A sushi sous chef position being posted is a sure sign, the opening is near.

Meal Ticket reported earlier and then went back on a story that Stephen Simons and Dave Frank (Khyber Pass Pub, Royal Tavern, the Cantinas) were set to take over the Triangle Tavern at 10th and Reed. And as much as we would like that to be the case, Simons tells us it isn’t so. Though they did put a bid on the property “a while ago,” that offer was not accepted.
Simons also tells us construction has just begun on the long-anticipated Royal Izakaya project set for 2nd Street in Queen Village. The opening date for that Japanese pub is about three months out.
