Eight months ago, the owners of long-running Gayborhood favorite More Than Just Ice Cream announced that they’d be closing the restaurant[1] they’d run at 1119 Locust Street for years. Soon after, Noord chef-owner Joncarl Lachman announced that he’d divested from the Dutch, the daytime spot he co-owned in Pennsport with Fond’s Lee Styer, in order to take over[2] the MTJIC space with Winkel[3], a new breakfast and lunch project.

On Memorial Day, Winkel — which means “little shop” in Dutch[4] and references a popular Amsterdam restaurant — opened its doors for the first time.

On weekdays, the BYOB serves breakfast — omelets, shakshuka, French toast, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes — and salads and sandwiches, from a house-smoked salmon club to the Winkel Tosti, a Croque Monsieur-esque toasted ham and cheese sandwich with grilled pineapple and a side of mustard.
