The Obsidian Eats food cart — with its plant-based takes on dishes from cheesesteaks to chicken-fried cauliflower to potstickers — has been a welcome addition to West Philly’s Cedar Park this year. And they’re bringing a star of vegan cuisine to the neighborhood for an all-day plant-based pop-up over Labor Day weekend.
Back in April, we reported that an out-of-the-way block in West Philly’s Cedar Park neighborhood might get a new beer garden and community gathering spot from a team that includes Dahlak bar and entertainment manager Ephream Amare Seyoum.
Last week, one of the organizers, Jocelyn DeGroot-Lutzner, announced to a neighborhood Facebook group that the clearing of the vacant lot on the 5100 block of Pentridge Street has begun, and Pentridge Station has an opening date.
The family behind Baltimore Avenue’s Eritrean restaurant and bar Dahlak is working with a neighborhood-based developer to open Pentridge Station, a family-friendly pop-up beer garden and social space, in southwest Cedar Park.
