Two more in Fairmount

Lemon Hill and Hickory Lane are poised to open.

Two more in Fairmount

Two projects are in the final weeks of construction:

Hickory Lane, which will partner chef Matt Zagorski and manager Jack Henderson in a BYOB at 2025 Fairmount Ave. (across from Eastern State Pen), is waiting for a health department inspection. The guys did almost all the work themselves - yielding a classy, rough-hewn look, while keeping all fingers intact. Zagorski was chef at Rouge, and Henderson was the early money partner at the space's previous occupant, L'Oca.

Lemon Hill, replacing Lucky 7 at 25th and Aspen Streets, is shooting for a soft opening Dec. 26. It's the team from Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. with a menu created by Supper chef/owner Mitch Prensky being driven by the restaurant's brick oven.
