Executive Chefs Mike Sultan and Carolyn Nguyen of Revolution Taco, 33rd Street Hospitality Catering and Say Cheese Philly announce a new partnership with Neshaminy Creek's Brewing Company. The duo will debut the 33rd Street Hospitality Kitchen at Neshaminy's newly opened Borough Brewhouse (208 York Rd.) starting on July 5th. The kitchen will serve up a full menu of upscale pub fare to pair with the 30 selections of drafts pouring, including 6 drafts that will be made on location. Food selections will include new dishes designed specially for the Jenkintown kitchen, as well as several signature dishes from the duo's other restaurant and food trucks. Kitchen service will launch on July 5thstarting with dinner service Wednesday through Sundays, with expanded hours and days of operation in the fall. Table reservations for the 149 seat bar and dining room will be available later this summer.
"We have had a great relationship with Neshaminy Creek for the last five years," said Sultan. "We’ve done catering for them, our trucks have been at the brewery and we partner together every year for the Brewer’s plate competition. Plus, we recently figured out that about 15 years ago, one of the Neshaminy Creek owners worked for the same chef that gave me my start. We only missed working together by a couple of months."
"We love Mike and Carolyn's food and felt like it was a perfect combo with our beers," said Neshaminy co-owner Jeremy Myers. "Our motto is 'Brew Anything' so you'll see a lot of different styles on tap and brewed on location. The food menu was designed with that motto in mind - with dishes to pair with a diverse variety of styles."
Neshaminy Creek's Borough Brewhouse opened in May with a limited beer selection and no food service. The building was formerly the Guild Hall Brewing Co. and seats 21 at the expansive bar, 96 people in the downstairs dining room and 32 in the upstairs dining room. The addition of the 33rd Street Hospitality Kitchen will help complete the final phase of the Borough Brewhouse project and make it the first full service entity operated by Neshaminy Creek.
The Borough Brewhouse will be managed by Neshaminy veteran General Manager Christen Deerwester. The brewhouse and kitchen will create 28 to 40 new jobs, with more new jobs to come down the road.
At the bar, look for 30 total taps pouring - that will include six dedicated to beer brewed on site, one dedicated to cider from Stone & Key, one mead from Haymaker, two dedicated to rotating guest Pennsylvania breweries each month and the remaining 20 will be beers from the main production facility in Croydon. Production of beer on site is planned to start in the next few months.
"There is/was a lack of craft beer being brewed in Jenkintown and the surrounding area and we got a lot of feedback from locals that they really wanted someone to take over the vacant Guild Hall location," added Myers.
In the kitchen, the menu from 33rd Street Hospitality include about two dozen items that range from small bites, entrees, sandwiches and even desserts.
When asked about his favorite or notable dishes, Sultan replied, "Our Lamb Merguez Flatbread is pretty unique. The dish consists of flatbread topped with North African inspired Lamb sausage and a white garlic goat cheese spread finished with asparagus. Everything is made in-house from the flatbread itself to the goat cheese spread and even the sausage is made right here in the kitchen."
Other dishes of note include Fried chicken Bao Buns using the same recipe as Revolution Taco and Revolution Taco Truck. Look for a variation of the Bao Buns with the pork belly version with ssamjang aioli and pickled veg cilantro. A sampling of the menu is below, with the final menu and pricing to debut on July 5th.
