The winds of change continue blowing through the Franklin Mortgage and Lemon Hill realms. You’ll recall that managing partner Mike Welsh exited the hospitality group that owns and operates both venues last month. And that followed the parting of ways between the Hill, the Franklin and Supper chef-owner Mitch Prensky. Word comes this morning from Lemon Hill assistant manager Daniel Eng that the Fairmount restaurant’s chef, Joel Mazigian, will now be handling the food side of things for the subterranean Center City cocktail joint. Just as before, the small menu of snacks will change periodically with what’s in season. Some highlights of what’s new include speck with house mustard; Bayley Hazen Blue with pear vanilla aigre-doux, candied walnuts; and spicy smoked almonds.
