Chef Matt Moon resurfaces

Talula's Table alumnus has landed in Fairmount.

Chef Matt Moon resurfaces


Big-deal chef news:

Bishop's Collar in Fairmount will launch a new menu Friday, Dec. 2. New menus don't usually warrant much attention - I mean, every restaurant worth its salt shaker changes its menu - except for who's behind this new menu.

Now in charge at Bishop's Collar is Matt Moon, whose resume includes Talula's Table in Kennett Square, where he was part of that celebrated kitchen's brain trust after the departure of Bryan Sikora.

He also very briefly succeeded Michael Santoro at Talula's Garden during that tumultuous period this spring following a less-than-stellar review.

Bishop's Collar menu items include a braised short rib sandwich with beer onions and blue cheese; turkey pot pie; slowcooked chicken sausage in peppers and onions topped with provolone; vegetarian mushroom meatballs; and baked cheddar with lagered onions and soft pretzel.

Update: Matt is consulting chef at Bishop's Collar. In the new year, he will join Sampan as a sous chef.
