Fairmount's New Whole Foods is Going To Have a Bar

The first thing that comes to mind when one hears Whole Foods isn’t craft cocktails, but that is just what we’re going to get when the new supermarket opens next week.

According to Philly Mag, the high-end grocery store will have two pubs serving 20 local beers, wine-by-the-glass, specialty cocktails, pizzas and salads. Additionally, there will be a mobile cocktail cart on the premises. A ModBar will also be on site for diners to enjoy Allegro gourmet coffee and coffee cocktails, along with local BKON brothers tea. Since it is a Whole Foods there will also be a fresh juice bar on the premises to healthfully hydrate you.

Aside from the booze, there is a star cast of local chefs planning on setting up shop in the new market. Each restaurant will run as a separate in-store venue in the giant 140-seat hall. Partners Chef Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh of Cheu Noodle Bar will be serving their popular bowls and small plates. Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook of Cook and Solo favorites Zahav, Abe Fisher, and Dizengoff will serve their famous Israeli-style hummus and fresh baked pita. Marc BrownGold of Severino Pasta will open Cucina Rustica will bringing the family’s homemade pasta, sandwiches, salads, and desserts to the store. There will also be a new operation from Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby from Vedge and V Street called Wiz Kid— offering fast-casual vegan food.

The 61,990 square foot Whole Foods will be located at the new Dalian complex in Rodin Square at 2101 Pennsylvania Ave. The store is set to open on Friday, October 14.
