Craig LaBan likes what he sees from chef Terence Feury’s Tavro 13. Well everything except maybe the decor.
Feury at his best, especially with top-notch seafood, is worth the visit, whether for pristine Fire River oysters with Champagne mignonette, scallop ceviche enlivened with lime and chiles, or tender calamari marinated in serrano chile oil and seared on the plancha with pureed almonds and preserved lemon.
A swordfish over squash puree with pumpkin seeds was meltingly moist. Seared cod topped with parsley and potato chips provided the perfect flake-and-crunch contrast to the funky pairing of soft, potatoey salt cod brandade.

I was more than a little shocked when I heard that longtime Fork chef Terence Feury was headed to Swedesboro, New Jersey, to open Tavro 13. And based on numerous experiences at Fork, I was even more shocked when an early visit wasn’t delightful. Read the rest of this entry »

Former Meme owner and chef David Katz will be heading to Tavro 13 in New Jersey with Terence Feury. Michael Klein says Katz will help with the opening and will develop the wine list.
As for Katz’s Meme location, a liquor license has popped up registered to Dan Clark, owner of nearby Pub & Kitchen. No word yet on whether this will wind up being the Bedford Cafe concept the P&K team wanted to open at 20th and Kater. That plan was short-circuited when neighbors, who were against the cafe, bought the building themselves.

We’re just a day away from being able to try Chris Kearse’s food at Will. But he isn’t the only chef who we’re looking forward to trying.
Michael Santoro was the opening chef at Talula’s Garden and his resume includes the respected Blue Duck Tavern in Washington D.C., Fat Duck in England and Mugaritz in Spain is opening Mildred in early September.
In September Eli Kulp will take over the kitchen at Ellen Yin’s Fork in Old City. Kulp comes to Philadelphia from New York and the popular Torrisi Italian Specialties. Culp is a Culinary Institute of America graduate and has also worked in Manhattan’s Casa Lever, La Fonda del Sol and Del Posto. Chef Kulp is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
The always impressive Terence Feury who left Fork will be back cooking as the chef-owner of Tavro 13 in Swedesboro, New Jersey.
Joncarl Lachman who comes to Philadelphia from Chicago is looking for a spot to open Winkel, a Dutch and Northern European restaurant. Certainly something we don’t have now in Philadelphia.
Another respected chef from out of town looking for a restaurant space in Philadelphia is chef John Shields of the acclaimed Town House in Chilhowie, VA. He moved to West Chester earlier this year and hopes to open in 2013.

Looks like things are coming along just fine at Terence Feury‘s Tavro 13 / Old Swedes Inn project. And I know this because he’s currently looking for a heavyweight GM to run the front of the house for him when Tavro 13 opens in September. Here’s what they’re looking for:
Chef Terence Feury is looking for a GM for his new American restaurant on King’s Highway in Swedesboro, New Jersey. The restaurant is set to open in September. Candidates must have the ability to lead the front of house team, create a service manual, hire and train front of house staff. Additional responsibilities will include wine service, knowledge of food and beverage and the ability to work with the chef to insure synchronized service and the most positive guest service. Send resumes to: hiringtavro13@AOL.com
But hey, maybe FOH just ain’t your bag. Maybe you’re looking for something more along the lines of a pastry cook’s gig at Route 6 or being a line cook at Talula’s Table. If so, you should really be checking out the Foobooz jobs page, where these positions and more are available for the asking.
So what are you waiting for?
