The Corner Foodery, that mash-up of The Corner restaurant and bar in Midtown Village (gayborhood, if you must), and super-convenient beer store and deli combo The Foodery (and its offshoots in NoLibs and Roxborough) that’s been in the works for more than a year, will finally open today on the 1700 block of Sansom Street at 11 a.m. With union protests, stop work orders, and most recently, as Corner chef John “Chainsaw” Taus pointed out on Facebook, a no-show chef, the run-up to its debut has been a bumpy ride. For its premiere today, Taus will have a selection of sandwiches, and house-cured charcuterie on offer. As with its three Foodery predecessors, you can also expect a deep stock of bottled beers from around that world.
The Corner Foodery, 1710-12 Sansom Street, (215) 567-1500
Update: Though doors are open, and about half of the menu items will be available today for a soft opening of sorts, Taus just told Grub Street that The Corner Foodery’s official debut won’t come until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
