It looks like Fork owners Ellen Yin and Roberto Sella have found their replacement for outgoing chef Terence Feury. He stepped down recently to focus on Tavro 13, the top-to-bottom redo of the Old Swedes Inn in Swedesboro, New Jersey. His former sous chef Luke Eschbach has been holding down the kitchen in his absence. According to the Insider, soon-to-be New York transplant Eli Kulp, the former chef de cuisine at Torrisi Italian Specialties is now stepping in to head the Old City mainstays kitchen. But thats not all. We have more chef news to share.
Forthcoming Growlers, thats Jason Evenchiks revival of the Bella Vista bar and restaurant formerly known as Little Bar (and Vesuvio before that), has hired a chef too. Foobooz reports that hes Jerry Donohue, and that in the past he was the top dog at Spamps and Blue Bell Country Club. He is also a member of the competitive barbecue team Master Basters who took the top honors at last years Smoke Em If Youse Got Em contest at Yards Brewing Co., which means his menu will frequently feature smoky delicious specials in addition to the pub fare thats going to be served there. An opening is expected in mid-September.
