Grand Opening: Our friends at Park Plates
Elkins Park has been like a second home to Greenstreet Coffee Roasters. We are proud and honored to be working with the veteran chefs on coffee at the new park plates (www.parkplatesrestaurant.com) in Elkins Park. They are opening their doors publicly tonight! Here is an excerpt from Michael Klein:
Culinary Institute of America grads Locke Johnston and Owen Lee will share cooking, though Johnston plans to be more customer-facing at their Mediterranean/Middle Eastern-leaning BYOB. (Lee had left catering 13 years ago to open Cibucan in Center City.)
The space, formerly the short-lived Whistle Stop Cafe, has two dining rooms and a room for private parties and retail.
It will serve dinner Tuesday to Saturday. Figure on entrees priced from $15 to $20. Sample dishes: roasted cauliflower with capers, eggplant, lemon and eggplant crisps; pan-roasted, house-smoked salmon on rye with fennel curls and preserved lemon aioli; lamb and zucchini kofta with olives, yogurt and mint; and semolina cake with candied carrots, dates, cardamom syrup, and goat cream.
