Joncarl Lachman’s Restaurant Neuf is set to open on Wednesday, September 16th if all goes well. And on Tuesday, September 8th, Lachman and Best of Philly winning bartender, Jesse Cornell (who will be the  head man at Neuf) are offering a preview at American Sardine Bar.

Cornell will be testing out several cocktails including a Cynar Sour and a riff on a cognac French 75. While the wine will feature Southern French and even Moroccan offerings, Cornell will play around with French spirits and herbs and spice blends that will also be in the food, but he doesn’t want to get boxed in too much by those ingredients.

And since you can’t truly appreciate the drinks without the food, Lachman will be offering samples of the food from Neuf, including:

  • Braised lamb couscous with a tomato broth
  • Swordfish with pistachio over flageolet beans
  • Salad of fennel three ways

No reservations, just show up on the second floor of ASB after 7 p.m.
