Almost exactly a year ago, Restaurant Neuf opened its doors in the Italian Market. The restaurant from Joncarl Lachman and Bob Moysan of Noord has, to this point, only served dinner.
Now in addition to getting brunch at both Noord and Lachman’s newest spot, The Dutch in Pennsport, you can now enjoy the Northern African and French-inspired cuisine for brunch at Neuf, located at 943 S. 9th St.
The Inquirer‘s Craig Laban paid the restaurant a visit, giving it two bells. He applauds The Dutch for serving one of Philly’s more distinctive steak and eggs dishes, along with a pretty great eggs Benedict, but noted mixed feelings towards dishes including the banana pancake and the Dutch baby.
This location was previously home to the short-lived Fourth and Cross. Former owner Andrew Michaels did a complete renovation of the location, which was formerly Bell’s Delly, prior to opening his restaurant. That made the spot pretty much move-in-ready for these two East Passyunk Avenue chefs, Styer of Fond and Lachman of Noord and Neuf.
Now that Fourth and Cross is gone, an exciting prospect is coming soon to the location, from two of East Passyunk Avenue’s highly-regarded chefs. Lee Styer of Fond and Joncarl Lachman of Noord and Restaurant Neuf are teaming up for a new breakfast concept called The Dutch.
