Description
 
When one door closes, another door opens. Such is the case when Chris Kearse closed Will, his beloved, contemporary French BYOB in the heart of South Philly on East Passyunk Avenue. Kearse’s next venture, Forsythia, is opening soon in the former Capofitto space in Old City and will feature modern French fare, as well as a full bar. A  graduate (and class valedictorian!) of the Restaurant School in Philadelphia, Kearse has worked in an impressive array of Michelin-starred restaurant kitchens across the country including Charlie Trotter’s (2 Michelin stars), alongside Laurant Gras at Tru (3 Michelin stars), Grant Achatz at Alinea (3 Michelin stars), and briefly with Thomas Keller and Cory Lee at the French Laundry. In 2008, Chris returned to Philadelphia to work at Lacroix, and from there, held positions in the kitchens of Blackfish and Pumpkin before opening Will. Chef Chris believes that a dining experience should be entertainment. Join him when he returns to COOK for an exclusive preview of Forsythia with a menu of melon and tomato salad with burrata; mussels escabeche , smoked paprika, garlic flowers, pickled uni; whole roasted hen is the woods with smoke ricotta, madeira, summer herbs; cacio e pepe with pink peppercorns; and kettle corn crème brûlée.
