Eat Junto’s Best of Philly Winning Fish for a Good Cause
The August full moon is known as a “Sturgeon Moon” as historically native Americans found it the best time to catch sturgeon in the Great Lakes and on Lake Champlain.
The sustainable-farm raised sturgeon dish is smoked on Alder wood with romanesco, fermented celery root, watercress, lemon verbena and white wine emulsion. The dish at the Chaddsford restaurant is $30.
Atlantic sturgeon were once plentiful on the Delaware River, although now less than 300 spawning adults from the Delaware River’s distinct genetic line of Atlantic sturgeon remain. Learn more about Atlantic sturgeon here.
The donation will continue as long as the sturgeon dish is on the menu, which hopefully isn’t going anywhere.
