New details today on the forthcoming Fabric Row project from chefs Scott Schroeder (South Philly Tap Room, Sardine Bar) and Pat O'Malley (Balthazar Bakery): The Insider reports that it will be an all-day cafe and restaurant called Hungry Pigeon.
Expect cafe-style service for breakfast and lunch, taking full advantage of pastry chef O'Malley's baking skills, and waiter service at dinner. Schroeder tells the Insider that the menu will include family-style meals, an emphasis on vegetables rather than "a contest to see how much meat we can put on the table," and wine on tap.
Hungry Pigeon is targeting a fall opening. In the meantime, look out for some pre-opening events and previews. The first sneak peek will take place upstairs at Vetri on Monday, June 22, at a cost of $150 per person. They'll also hold a fundraiser with an all-star lineup of guests on Sunday, July 12, at Isaiah Zagar's Watkins Street art space. The $100-a-head event will feature food and drink from Joey Baldino (Zeppoli), Greg Vernick (Vernick), George Sabatino (Aldine), Jason Cichonski (Ela, the Gaslight), Joe Beddia (Pizzeria Beddia), Tod Wentz (Townsend), Ultimo Coffee, Tired Hands Brewing, and many more.
