Burger Monday At Taproom On 19th


Today is Monday. And Mondays at Taproom on 19th means Burger Monday, which means 1/2 off burgers from Elijah Milligan and his crew in the kitchen.

So that burger right up there? That lovely creature is half-price right now. And we are jealous of every single person who is currently running from their desks to go and score one of them for themselves.

Elijah Milligan (formerly of Laurel, Stateside, Le Bec Fin) has been on the job at Tap Room on 19th for about two weeks now and tonight he rolls out his first full menu. There’s an emphasis on shareable plates and it is highlighted by the likes of chorizo poutine, oxtail nachos, Bavarian pretzel bites, soft shell crab sandwich and a Pat LaFrieda blend burger.

Check it out tonight and wash down whatever you get with an IPA, because Wednesdays are half-priced IPA nights.

New Chef for Tap Room on 19th

tap-room-19th-girard-estateTap Room on 19th in the Girard Estate neighborhood has received positive note since Michael Strauss and his team took over. Part of that praise included the kitchen, run by Jennifer Choplin. But today, Strauss tells us that Choplin and the Tap Room have parted ways. Strauss has brought on Elijah Milligan who has been working on Nick Elmi’s team at Laurel and before that, succeeded George Sabatino at Stateside.

Milligan begins today and he’ll be getting his cooking out there through the Tap Room’s specials and further down the line, across the menu. According to Strauss, that menu will still include “upscale, comfort, stoner food.”

Chef Elijah Milligan continues to put his mark on the menu at Stateside. Late, last week Milligan rolled out his mid-Spring main menu. Among the items that caught our eye; seared foie gras with whiskey French toast, grilled grapes and ice wine vinegar; veal sweetbreads and  Stateside Stew, a stew of rotating house-made sausage, fresh fish and shellfish  plus vegetables.

Elijah Milligan’s First Menu At Stateside


New chef Elijah Milligan just took over the kitchen at Stateside three days ago, but he’s already putting his stamp on the kitchen. Gone are the pickles, the cheeses and the heavy dependance on charcuterie that characterized George Sabatino’s board, but there are some interesting twists of modernity and locality in evidence here.

Stateside Names Its New Chef


We know that everyone has been wondering who would come along to fill the post left (very) recently vacant by chef George Sabatino at Stateside (whose last day is, well, today). And now we know. Elijah Milligan will be the new chef, and he’s certainly a bold choice.

Here’s what the Stateside ownership had to say.
