Provided that a water main break doesn’t wash out Fishtown today, Fette Sau, Stephen Starr and Joe Carroll’s recreation of the Brooklyn-based barbecue joint of the same name, will finally open the doors to the ramshackle-chic shanty that’s been partially under wraps next to Frankford Hall for months. As mentioned here before, the Frankford Ave. outpost’s menu will be very similar to the Williamsburg original. Dry-rubbed meats will be sold by the pound. Simple salads, veggies, and pickles will accompany them. The bar will have nine taps to dispense local and craft beers, including three exclusive house brews from Sly Fox, Dock Street, and Earth Bread + Brewery. One will be devoted to cider. There’s also going to be a large collection of American whiskeys. All the seating is communal, and there’s no table service. Carroll sends word that he “is 99 percent settled on the menu for tonight,” including one of the promised “Philly-specific” items. Keep reading to see it.
