The chef behind farm-to-table concept The Farm and Fisherman has decided to close the doors to focus on expansion. Drexel University grad and Conshohocken-born Chef Josh Lawler will be closing The Farm and the Fisherman at the end of May reports Eater Philadelphia, five years after he opened it with wife Colleen, who is also a chef.
About The Farm & Fisherman: "Is a 30-seat BYOB owned by husband-wife team Josh & Colleen Lawler. This intimate setting allows for a truly hands-on approach from these two accomplished chefs. Josh served as the former chef de cuisine at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a renowned restaurant considered one of the pioneers in the locavore/farm-to-table movement. Colleen served as sous chef at the New York Times 3-star restaurant Picholine, known for its focus on quality and creativity. Together, Josh & Colleen have merged the combination of their experiences and focus to return to Philadelphia where they are both from and met while attending Drexel University. The menu, which changes with the nuances of the seasons, features the finest sustainably sourced ingredients including meat, fish, and poultry."
