South Jersey Gets Ambitious At Blackbird

Craig LaBan hopped the Ben Franklin bridge to try out some fine dining, New Jersey-style. Collingswood’s Blackbird Dining Establishment offers up a French and Italian menu courtesy of ex-Brasserie Perrier chef Alex Capasso. The food is great and the ex-hardware store location is funky:

Where once his neighbors went to buy shovels and cut new keys, Capasso is now spinning pasta “love letters” tossed with braised rabbit, frothing “cappuccinos” steeped with figs, and working wonders with baby goat.
