Lafayette Hill landmark Brittingham's is undergoing a major transformation, now that it's been sold to new owners and long-time restaurateurs Randy Feinberg and David Eckelmeyer. The duo will shut down Brittingham's as we know it on April 1, and will cut the ribbon on version 2.0 later this summer.
The design update will include natural wood elements and brighter colors to both dining rooms and a greatly expanded outdoor seating area with a wraparound deck and firepits. The new owners promise the same comfortable vibe that Brittingham's has always been known for, with the addition of more modern dishes conjured up by consulting chef Johnny Mac—who just left Pub & Kitchen—that will be executed by day-to-day chef Joseph Frost. Frost and Mac first worked together many years ago at the legendary Brasserie Perrier.
Keith Raimondi of Lemon Hill has been brought on as the consultant for the beverage program, and will be creating the cocktail menu as well as sourcing the craft beer that will fill the taps at the new Brittingham's.
No word yet on when the new Brittingham's will make its big debut, but when word comes in, we'll pass it along. Stay tuned.
