Lee Styer and Joncarl Lachman’s new breakfast concept in Pennsport called The Dutch is moving along quickly. It’s been less than a month since we’ve told you about the new restaurant and as of late next week, this breakfast spot will be open for business.
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.
More on the menu from Eater:
Rival Brothers is the local roast of choice, available by bottomless drip. Fresh-squeezed juices and teas (hot and cold) will be available once the crew’s all settled in. Breakfast will be available all day, which means all the uitsmijters, ring bologna benedicts, dutch babies, and steak with beet-poached eggs you can handle until 3 p.m. (the restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday, starting at 8 a.m.). The space seats 34 inside, plus 8-10 outside, weather permitting. Credits cards are accepted, but they’re not taking reservations — feel free to put in your name at the door when it gets busy.
The Dutch is hosting a party on Monday, April 11 starting at 6 p.m. to meet the neighbors. Later in the week you’ll be able to stop in for breakfast.
With The Dutch ready to open and Helm South on the way, food options sure are growing in Pennsport.
