“Autumn Is NOORD Weather”

Joncarl Lachman loves fall food and it shows on the menu at NOORD.

G Philly's 2013 pick for Best BYO, East Passyunk Avenue's Dutch eatery Noord, is turning 1 this year, and having a little shindig to celebrate. Stop by and congratulate out owner Joncarl Lachman, and nibble on some his famous bitterballen (Dutch braised pork meatballs), and some smoked fish. Tuesday, May 6, 6 p.m., free, Noord, 1046 Tasker Street.

Joncarl Lachman loves fall cooking.

Joncarl Lachman has just begun serving his fall menu at his Passyunk Avenue BYOB, NOORD. Fall is Lachman’s favorite time to cook and he points out that “autumn is ‘Noord Weather'” and we happen to agree. It is also time for snert to be on the menu and snert might just be the favorite word of the entire Foobooz staff. Snert!

In addition to the snert, a Dutch split pea soup served with sausage, bacon and rusk, other fall dishes include Maastrichts Zuurvlees, beer & vinegar braised beef served with vegetables and clove; and Hete Kip Uitsmijter, an open faced spicy chicken sandwich served on milk bread with gouda, sunny-side up eggs, salad and pickles.
