I get by with a little help from my friends

 Lucky Old Souls Burger truck has become a mobile food institution slinging their locally sourced, grass fed beef in communities throughout the City. Their truck broke down and instead of letting all their amazing products go to waste, we are hosting a collaborative #Pattymelt #Popup!  Woohoo!

Specials Include:

Patty Melt and Kennett Fries: Black Angus beef from Rineer Family Farms in Lancaster County, Lancaster Jack Cheese, sautéed onions on an inside-out challah roll - $10

Bacon Patty Melt and Kennett Fries: Black Angus beef from Rineer Family Farms in Lancaster County, Lancaster Jack Cheese, LOS cured bacon from Country Time Farm pork bellies in Berks County, sautéed onions on an inside-out challah roll - $12

If you order either of the above, you’ll be able to pair it with a $4 beer - that is TBD…

We’re excited to help Matt of LOS out. Hope to see you and call us with any questions at 267.687.1426.

Travel & Leisure: Great Restaurants in Philadelphia

We are THRILLED with the honor to be featured in this month’s Travel & Leisure Magazine!

Repurposing materials and rethinking spaces is a common thread here, whether the makeover is DIY or a high-toned production. Kennett is an eco-aware revamp of a circa-1924 café, with reclaimed wainscoting, soy-based paint, upholstery made from recycled plastic bottles, and a pizza oven built with bricks found on the old property. In a town known for great neighborhood hangouts, it stands out for a tight craft beer list, imaginative cocktails, and chef Brian Ricci’s innovative country cooking using local sources.

Click here to read more about our feature in Travel & Leisure plus the other top contenders in the City.

Thanks again to Christopher Landy for making our food look just as mouth watering on screen.
