NoLibs and East Passyunk BYOBs Team Up for One Night
Northern Liberties’ charming BYOB Jaxon is having its first birthday party on March 22nd, and they’re inviting some South Philly friends over for a little shindig. And like he did last year, Jaxon’s chef Matthew Gansert will collaborate with a big-dog Philly chef, this time Joncarl Lachman, chef-owner of Noord, Neuf, and The Dutch.
It’s five courses for $55 (tax and gratuity not included). The restaurant is tiny, so make sure you call 215-922-2621 for reservations. Here’s the menu:
Noord’s Amsterdam Mussel
anise, garlic, beer
Jaxon’s Grilled Octopus
taramasalata, cucumber, radish
Noord’s Champaign-Braised Rabbit Rillettes
prunes, pickles, house bread
Jaxon’s Fava Bean and Cheese Agnolotti
morels, buerre monté
Noord’s Kabritu Stoba (Netherlands Antilles-style braised goat curry)
chick peas and jasmin rice
Jaxon’s Market Fish
asparagus, panisse, and early spring pesto.
