The Landing Kitchen in Bala Cynwyd has managed to perfectly capture the allure of riverside dining that is drawing hundreds of people to the relatively newly open eatery every day, writes Craig LaBan for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Located in the former Pencoyd Iron Works, the establishment is a lush hideaway that takes full advantage of the expansive terrace. This was one of its main draws for the owners, Top Chef Nicholas Elmi and his business partner Fia Berisha.
They envisioned The Landing Kitchen as a breezy community hub serving breakfast, lunch, and light weekend dinners. It is ideal for nice weather, but also has an indoor dining room as well as outdoor fire pits and heaters.
Among the highlights of the breakfast menu is the heavy-duty Ironworker that features three thick slices of fried pork layered with a fried egg, cheese, and preserved green tomatoes.
Meanwhile, the lunch options include the delicious TLK burger stacked with two 3-ounce patties with spicy mayo and pickles.
The drinks options are also plentiful, including the festive and colorful canned cocktails made by Berisha and Fishtown’s Walktails.
