Description
 
Sojourn Restaurant Group owners Jill Weber and Evan Malone, the team behind Rex 1516, Jet Wine Bar and Cafe Ynez, are expanding. In addition to Jet Wine Bar opening an outdoor wine garden and Rex relocating up South Street to the former Royal Theater, Sojourn is expanding to the Kensington neighborhood with a sister restaurant to Cafe Ynez: Sor Ynez. To help oversee the expansions and new venture, Sojourn has brought in Lucio Palazzo to serve as Culinary Director.  A member of the opening team at Zahav, Lucio was invited by Michael Solomonov to helm Xochitl, his longtime Mexican venture, and so began Palazzo’s love affair with Mexican cuisine. Palazzo went on to work at Tim Spinner’s La Calaca Feliz in Fairmount and Taqueria Feliz in Manayunk prior to joining Loco Pez. While Sor Ynez is slated for a winter 2020 opening, Lucio is returning to COOK to offer a sneak peek of the menu’s traditional and modern Mexican fare, which promises to be VERY vegetarian/vegan friendly: botanas to start (guacamole, corn masa crisps, garlic chapulines, sopecito with huitlacoche butter, charred tomato salsa); sopa Azteca with tomato and chile broth, tortilla strips, avocado, epazote, queso panela; hibiscus tlacoyo with beets, black beans, Shellbark sharp goat cheese; celery root al pastor tacos with pineapple, onion, cilantro; smoked local turkey in a pumpkin seed mole with honeynut squash and rice; and churros with goat’s milk cajeta. Dios mío, this is gonna be good!
