Hey, you guys heard the news that Sylva Senat is going to be on the newest season of Top Chef, right?
Well Philly’s original Top Chef, Kevin Sbraga, is celebrating something, too. It’s been five years since he opened his namesake restaurant on Broad Street after winning Season 7. He was part of the generation of chefs that kicked off the newest Philadelphia restaurant revolution that we’re in the late stages of right now. And now, he’s an institution with multiple locations, a fast casual concept and a two-week-long celebration of how far he’s come since opening night.
So how does a chef celebrate something like that? With a prix fixe throwback menu featuring dishes from his original Sbraga menu.
Over the July 4th weekend, chef Kevin Sbraga was on the Today show in New York City, cooking up burgers with Andy Kitko of STK in New York.
The competition ended in a tie (Sbraga was robbed) and starting tonight, you can get Sbraga’s Southern burger at his eponymous restaurant.
Sbraga’s burger is being served at the bar at Sbraga through the end of the month. The burger’s patty is a blend of ground brisket and short rib, and is topped with comeback sauce, aged sharp cheddar, Benton’s bacon, and caramelized onion jam. It’s served on a house made sesame bun. The burger is $15 and we’ll be saddling up to the bar to try one out shortly.
Last night, Kevin Sbraga showed off his Little Fat Ham at a media preview of Spruce Street Harbor Park. The Hot Fish, a seafood take on the Fat Ham’s hot chicken warmed the curious on a cool spring night. But that’s far from the only news coming from the Sbraga camp this week. Sbraga officially announced what we told you about on April 1st, the Fat Ham is opening a location at the King of Prussia Mall.
The King of Prussia location of the Fat Ham is slated to open late this summer. The 1,400 square foot, 67-seat restaurant will join more than 50 new stores and eateries in the mall’s expansion. In addition to Sbraga’s take on Southern comfort food, KoP’s Fat Ham will also offer shoppers and eaters a top-notch, whiskey-centric beverage program.
