deep in the heart of South Philly lies a once dormant giant, which has recently been given a second life. We met with Lindsey Scannapieco, Project Manager + Managing Partner of Scout, to discuss how the team plans to breathe life back into this once vacant icon while respecting the history + cultural impact the building has had on the surrounding community and Philadelphia as a whole. From a rooftop bar to a nanoscientist, the former Edward Bok Technical High School is poised to once again provide new opportunities + further cement its legacy in South Philadelphia.
Fishtown local, pizza dude + all around good guy, Joe Beddia of Pizzeria Beddia, provided the inspiration for ‘the spicy salad that joe made’ on our new Winter hgTestKitchen menu. Lauded by Bon Appetit as the Best Pizza in America, Joe’s new spot down the street from us in Fishtown opens in early Spring. We are psyched to have his delicious, crunchy, spicy salad here, and we had the chance to catch up with him when he made a guest appearance in our hgTestKitchen…
To ring in 2019, we've launched our new Winter seasonal items—the Vegan AF stir-fry + the Soulfull Oats Salad (S.O.S.)—and while we're excited about both dishes, we're especially stoked about the delicious housemade multi-seed crackers in the S.O.S.
Have you heard of, or used, a 'kettlebell'? Originating in Russia as 'girya,' these handled cast metal weights are the centerpiece for Perry O'Hearn's latest fitness venture. You may know Perry as the owner of Philly Phitness, a personal training studio founded in 2012, which focuses on ‘total transformation’ to help each client achieve their personal best in all walks of life. Since opening, they have worked with nearly 1,000 people and have conducted over 35,000 personal training sessions.
one of the first artists who came to mind for the interior of our third Delaware location was fellow Philly-based friend, Ryan Psota. We've partnered with Ryan in the past, asking him to contribute a mural to our Front Street Walls, which he designed + painted in collaboration with in the Mural Arts Program. For our newest restaurant in Christiana, we gave Ryan two walls + asked him to make something bold + colorful. Needless to say, Ryan did not dissapoint.
upon our arrival in DC, we were inspired by other area businesses who like to focus on the local aspects of the district. Union Kitchen DC helps incubate + launch new DC food concepts out of its Ivy City commissary space while Atlas Brew Works delivers top tier craft beer to the city by way of a fully solar-powered brewery.
our new minigrow location on Summer Street in Boston's Downtown district is graced with an excellent exterior — the grand former main entrance to the 125 Summer Street building — but it's the interior artwork that elevates the space to the next level.
Soom Foods' tahini has been featured on the honeygrow menu for years, used to create sauces + dressings, such as our original Lemon Miso Tahini stir-fry sauce (which is once again available, but only at our 16th Street location) + our popular Sriracha Tahini dressing. We also now feature Soom tahini on our minigrow menus with our Black Pepper Tahini sauce.
