Teddy Sourias of Craft Concepts (BRU Craft & Wurst, U-Bahn, Uptown Beer Garden, Finn McCool's Ale House) has opened Cinder at 1500 Locust Street. The Rittenhouse cider/sour bar and artisanal pizza kitchen features ciders and wild ales on the 32 taps and 70+ bottles. Renowned chef Jonathan Petruce and his culinary team prepare pizzas, mussels, salads and small plates in the open kitchen focusing on local ingredients. Rustic pizza using creative and classical toppings is cooked in a custom-built, wood-fired oven. Beer is drawn from a full custom design system housed in copper pipes. The bar offers 10 wines by the glass and over 20 wines by the bottle. The stylish and sophisticated restaurant seats 68 and another 16 at the bar.
"Cinder is a unique concept that shines the spotlight on ciders and sours together for a new genre of beer bar," said Sourias. "We are essentially combining our favorite elements of a Belgian beer cafe (our original inspiration), with a wine bar/pizza kitchen (which we think is perfect for the area). Our intention is for this marriage to deliver a product that is consistently sophisticated and compelling, but intrinsically jovial and light-hearted. The perfect place for a date or dinner out on the town, but also comfortable enough to stop in for a pint or glass of wine after a long day (or night)."
Cinder is open seven days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. The full menu is available for lunch, afternoon and dinner service.
