High Street on Market Restaurant Review

: Old City American bistro Fork long had an adjacent market-based offshoot --- Fork etc. --- that specialized in soups, sandwiches and other gourmet-to-go items. Chef-partner Eli Kulp and owner Ellen Yin morphed the spot into High Street on Market, a full-fledged restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. The room is dominated by an open kitchen. Emphasis is on locally sourced products, including appetizing breads and pastries baked daily. At breakfast, choose among such items as pastrami & hash, a riff on the classic pastrami sandwich with spiced hash, a farm egg and Russian dressing. Sandwiches figure mightily in lunch choices with new takes on Philly classics --- think roast pork with fermented broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. In the evening, a parade of enticing vegetarian-friendly appetizers, notably the seasonal hummus with spicy chermoula, set the stage for innovative pastas and larger plates such as honey glazed half chicken. Desserts end the meal on a savory-sweet note. Seasonal cocktails highlight local spirits.
