The Corner Foodery is hosting a grand opening party today from noon-3 PM. Stop by for complimentary bites and a freshly-tapped keg of local brew. The venture, which is a partnership between The Foodery beer stores and Tony Rim’s The Corner restaurant in Midtown Village, has been soft open for just under two weeks.
Corner chef John Taus is in charge of the food, and has plans for an extensive housemade charcuterie program. Sandwiches run $7-$12, and come in both simple forms (the charcuterie on a bun with lettuce, tomato, onion) or more complex specialties such as the seared sardine sandwich with nduja, shaved fennel and pickled cauliflower There are also beer-worthy sides like marinated olives, roasted peppers and pine nuts and cannoli for dessert.
Kyle Sebring is overseeing the beer side of things, and has already stocked 500 different labels in the grab-and-go cases along the walls of the space, which sits on Sansom Street in Rittenhouse, across from the Sofitel. Six drafts are also on offer, to be enjoyed at booth or communal table seating with your sandwich of choice.
The shop opens at 10 AM, seven days a week, and stays open through 10 PM, Monday-Wednesday, 11 PM, Thursday and midnight, Friday-Saturday (215-567-1500).
