Restaurant notes: More Green Eggs; "Feastival"

The South Philly breakfast-lunchery is coming to Northern Liberties; how about a food festival tied to the Fringe?

  • The breakfast-lunchery Green Eggs Cafe, which opened just before New Year's at 1306 Dickinson St. in South Philly, is fixing a second location. This will be in Northern Liberties, in a space that co-owner Stephen Slaughter wants to keep under wraps (preferably one of their breakfast wraps). He's hoping to open around Labor Day. Same concept/menu, but longer hours: 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Here's Craig LaBan's two-bell look at the original.
  • Food is an art. Richard Vague and his merry band from the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe are planning a benefit called Feastival on Sept. 15 at the festival's hub (Fifth Street and Fairmount Avenue) that will pair the cultural and culinary communities. Event chairs Audrey Claire Taichman, Michael Solomonov, and Stephen Starr, with developer Gabe Canuso of Brown Hill Development and real estate lawyer Tony Forte of Saul Ewing, have  lured such names as Jose Garces, Georges Perrier, Michael Schulson, Ellen Yin, and Marc Vetri. Restaurants/food businesses on-board so far include: Amis, Audrey Claire, Bar Ferdinand, Buddakan, Capogiro, Continental, D’Angelos, El Rey, Fork, FruitFlowers, Le Bec Fin, Garces Trading Company, La Colombe, Lacroix, Le Castagne, Matyson, Melagrano, Metropolitan Bakery, Midatlantic, Modo Mio, Nectar, Noble, Osteria, Parc, Percy Street Barbecue, Pizzeria Stella, Pod, Pumpkin, R2L, Ristorante Panorama, Rouge, Sampan, Supper, Sweet Freedom Bakery, Twenty Manning Grill, Union Trust, Vetri, Xochitl, Zahav, and Zama. At $200 a head, it's not a cheap ticket, but it's a benefit for the arts, right? Info here.
  • Philly Beer Week will return for 2011 from Friday, June 3 through Sunday, June 12.
