George Sabatino will be in the kitchen at Morgan’s Pier when it opens this Thursday, May 9th but that won’t be the only place you can get his food this summer. Groundswell Design Group is collaborating with The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, University of the Arts, and Avram Hornik (4 Corners Management) to create a “Pop Up Garden” at 313 S. Broad Street, across from the Kimmel Center.
Beginning on Thursday, May 16th, the pop-up garden will transform a vacant lot into a community space. Locust trees will provide shade for visitors who stop in for a drink and bite of food after work. Repurposed shipping containers will be used to serve the food and drinks. Vintage metal rocking chairs, a sculptural wall constructed from old shipping pallets and strings of market lights will warm the lot.
The garden will offer three varieties of craft beer, sangria and casual food by Sabatino.
The pop-up garden hours:
Monday through Thursday; 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday and Saturday; 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Sunday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

At Sbraga, chefs compete for bragging rights and to keep their minds nimble. Drew Lazor has the story.
“When we do these battles, we’re not holding back. If somebody’s at one level,” explained [Greg] Garbacz, holding his hand high above his head, “everybody should be at that level. This shows everyone where that level is – where they need to be.”

For some its the presents, for others the holiday spirit, for many the coming together of the family, but for me, its all about the food. Fried food, to be exact.
