Philadelphia diners may recognize the guy running the front-of-the-house, it is Steve Schiavo, who won the 2011 Best of Philly award while he was working at Fond.

Remember a couple weeks ago when we were able to announce that Matt Ridgway (of PorcSalt fame, and formerly the chef at Lacroix) had gotten the retail arm of his new combination French bistro/general store in Rosemont, New Jersey up and running?
Yeah, well now we have even better news. Come May 1, The Pass will officially open to the public. And when that happens, Matt Ridgway will finally be back in the kitchen and cooking in our area–something he hasn’t been since 2004. (For those of you who are worried about the New Jersey address, Rosemont is just 5 miles from New Hope, on the Jersey side of the river).
So here’s what we know in terms of opening details:
Sous chef, hours, brunch news and an opening menu, right this way
Hey, remember a little while ago when we told you about Matt Ridgeway (of PorcSalt fame, and ex chef at Lacroix) opening a combination general store/French bistro called The Pass out in Rosemont, New Jersey? Yeah, well it looks like he’s now halfway there, with the announcement on PorcSalt’s Facebook page that the Pass’s “retail charcuterie counter” is now up and running. The restaurant portion? That’s not quite ready yet, but it’s coming.
The hours for the retail business are currently Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am-5pm. And for those of you who want to get a taste without making the drive (Rosemont is just a few minutes away from New Hope, on the Jersey side of the bridge), Ridgeway and his charcuterie will be at the Rittenhouse Market on Saturday from 10am-2pm.

PorcSalt’s Matt Ridgway (formerly chef de cuisine at Lacroix) has been crafting more than bacon. He’s turning his fledgling charcuterie business into a general store-meets-French-bistro concept called The Pass in Rosemeont, NJ (which is 5 miles from New Hope). Housed in a renovated farmhouse, that was most recently the Cafe at Rosemont, he’ll make, smoke, age and sell his charcuterie by day, and turn the shop into a restaurant at night, which will be like a modern French roadhouse of sorts, and also serve Sunday brunch. Charcuterie operation will be up and running in February, with the restaurant following in the spring.
