Photo Preview: WokWorks in Rittenhouse
Brennan Foxman is not a chef, nor has he owned a restaurant before. These minor inconveniences weren't nearly enough to stop the audacious 22-year-old from following his post-college inspiration: to open a better-than-fast-casual restaurant that offers unique Asian flavors at affordable prices.
Though he grew up in South Jersey by the Shore, Foxman’s family is originally from Philadelphia, and he decided the current culinary boom here would be a great place to get his start. When WokWorks opens its doors in Rittenhouse this week, Foxman’s dream will have successfully come to fruition
Judging from our preview tastes this past weekend, we all get to reap the rewards. In addition to build-your-own wokked dishes (noodles or rice, protein and veggies, sauce), the storefront at 1935 Chestnut offers a great selection of bites, all of them so tasty you quickly forget they're relatively good for you.
