The crew from The Corner has teamed up with the craft bottle experts from The Foodery to launch a new venture on 17th and Sansom in the next few months. The restaurant is tentatively titled "Norcino," and will feature the handiwork of John "Chainsaw" Taus matched up with the insane beer selection from The Foodery.
The current plan is for the restaurant to be a showcase for Taus' expansive skillset. During lunch hours, the restaurant will have a service counter where guests can order housemade charcuterie sandwiches and specialty sides. After 5 P.M, the space turns into a sit-down full-service restaurant, highlighting homemade pastas and breads, and fresh locally-sourced ingredients that will be hyper-seasonal.
While this project sounds like a monumental undertaking for both The Foodery and The Corner, we wait with baited breath for the first slice of mortadella to fall away from Taus' knife. Stay tuned to The Feast for more details as they emerge. [The Feast]
