a.kitchen and Chef Eli Kulp and Ellen Yin of Fork collaborate on a new culinary concept!

Chef Eli Kulp is reinventing the menus at a.kitchen with a simple, yet striking approach: flavor-forward cooking over lump hardwood charcoal using the freshest seasonal ingredients he can find. The technique is old-school in a way—just a red-hot smoldering fire—with Kulp bringing his modern approach and attention to detail to each dish. Add on a.kitchen's untouchable selection of food-friendly wines and you have a new one-of-a–kind Philadelphia dining experience. Look for new menus to launch in Mid–March. MORE→
