Making the most of our region’s fertile farming communities, John Scardapane and his team at EatNic Urban Farmhouse Eatery & BYOB rightly tout the sustainable integrity of their menu. “Everything is fresh and made to order,” says executive chef Tim Courtney, formerly of the Silverspoon in Wayne.
Tweaked daily yet still focused, the menu offers flaky Ora King salmon atop al dente julienne vegetables, soft udon noodles, and a savory ponzu-dashi broth; Creekstone Farms short rib with polenta, carrots and mole verde; wild-caught shrimp and grits; and more. This family-friendly spot also serves pizzas, small plates, soups, salads and kids’ meals. Philly Fair Trade Roasters provides the coffee, and standout house-made desserts include gelato and chai-sugar-dusted doughnuts.
BYOBers sip from vintage hand-cut crystal goblets—the perfect accessory to the shabby-chic furnishings, vintage mirrors, art and cookbooks, and funky easy chairs. The feel is both lived-in and elegant—almost to the point where you never want to leave.
