Watkins Drinkery gets a new chef, menu with ‘antelope falafel’

Watkins Drinkery, the refined former corner tap at 10th and Watkins, has lured itself a new chef, Tim Kozak, formerly of Local 44 in West Philly, Foobooz reports.


Last weekend, Konak rolled out a new menu, which hews toward Watkins’ traditional liking for game and creative twists on old standards.

Starters include wild boar bacon mac n cheese, a Scotch egg and pulled rabbit sliders. Six sandwiches – burger, mushroom po’ boy, antelope falafel, more – and three large plates – buffalo meatloaf, fish and chips and veggie enchiladas.

Wait, what? Antelope falafel? Someone please order that soon and report back.

Check out the menu.

    I love hanging at Watkins for drinks but I’m always put off by their menu, although everything I have eaten there was pretty good.

      If you’ve always had good food, why be put off by the menu?

    New menu looks great! Looking forward to giving it a try.

    This menu looks really good. Now if they would just update the paneling a bit and dim the lights a little…

    I tried the Antelope Felafel this week. It was a pleasant surprise! Though it was way too meaty to be considered “felafel” — but hey, I’m not complaining.
