East Passyunk


DAY 3, 2nd Seating: 6-Course Nouveau Dutch Dinner Series

If you’ve been feeling uninspired by the Japanese/Italian/Mexican/Thai/New American food horizon, it’s time to go Dutch. And we don’t mean that in the sense of sharing the cost of a meal. We mean that it is time to discover the homey delights of authentic Dutch cooking, courtesy of Chef-Owner Joncarl Lachman and Noord, his eetcafe, or bistro, in Southwest Philly. Chef Lachman worked under chefs like Nora Pouillon at Restaurant Nora in D.C. and Anne Rosenzweig at Inside in New York City and spent considerable time in The Netherlands, his family’s ancestral home, and up in Scandinavia, collecting culinary inspirations. At Noord, you’ll find pickled and smoked fish, plenty of mustard, pork meatballs, beets, cabbage, bacon, sausage—everything you need to get you through a late winter night. Time Out gives Noord four stars and calls it a “quintessential East Passyunk experience.” We will be taking over the restaurant for this event, and Chef Lachman will tell us why he thinks Northern cooking has become such a force in today’s food world.
