A bar honoring The Industry

Good Dog crew heads to Pennsport.

A bar honoring The Industry


Dave Garry and Heather Gleason of Center City’s Good Dog Bar, with Tom Darby, are setting up their Pennsport pub with the people of the restaurant industry in mind. (They'll get a discount.)

They say "spring" for The Industry (1401 E.  Moyamensing Ave., 215-271-9500) - taking over for The Witch at Reed Street and Moyamensing Avenue - will join a growing roster of friendly, neighborhood-targeted restaurant/bars serving seasonal American cuisine (including offal) and craft beers/cocktails/wines in an atmosphere of reclaimed wood. It will serve nightly dinner (kitchen open till 1 a.m. to accommodate the trade) and Sunday brunch (on till 4 p.m. for the same reason). Bar will have 12 drafts, a small list of beer bottles, five white wines by the glass and six reds.  

Chef Pat Szoke (The Farm and Fisherman, Vetri and Buddakan) offers as typical dishes: house-made charcuterie; beer can poussin, bone marrow with shallot marmalade and house-baked foccacia; and black pepper sausage. Snack menu includes potted trout, buffalo sweetbreads and deep-fried pork face nuggets. One midweek special will be called Burger & Bubbles - two burger options paired with either a glass of champagne or a pony bottle of Miller High Life poured tableside.

How fahncy.
