When did Supper chef Mitch Prensky know that his love of making biscuit sandwiches was worthy of its own bricks-and-mortar location? The first time he sold one. (We agree – and named it one of the five must-try Philly sandwiches.
You’ve probably seen his Scratch Biscuits tent popped-up at festivals, Phish shows, farmer’s markets and Night Markets (at the one Night Market he sold a whopping 1,100 biscuits in less than three hours). Now, he’s signed a lease at 1306 Chestnut Street for an actual location.
Beginning on October 22nd Supper will be hosting “Happy Hour Happynings” on every fourth Wednesday of the month, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
So what the hell is a “Happyning,” you ask? Kind of like a guided, themed happy hour. And this month’s theme features one of the world’s greatest culinary creations: cheese.
The “Cheese 101″ happy hour will be hosted at the restaurant by chef/owner Mitch Prensky and Whole Foods Market’s cheese guru Mike Coffey. For $15 per person, the duo will show you how to put together the perfect cheese board, discuss cheese myths, and supply you with samples of favored cheese from the Whole Foods board, with accompaniments.
And this being happy hour, of course there will be happy-hour-priced cocktails, beers and wines for your pairing pleasure.
With the new season comes the announcement that South Street’s Supper has assembled a new, seasonal cocktail menu and brought in some new blood behind the bar. Newly-minted “bar manager and libations specialist,” Tara Przybyszewski (ex of Zahav and Tria), has completely redone the restaurant’s bar program with an eye toward incorporating fresh juices and the bounty of the restaurant’s connection with Blue Elephant Farm. And today, she has released a seasonal, autumn cocktail menu that’s all brand new as well.
Check out the new booze after the jump.
