We had a wonderful dinner the other night at the Summer Kitchen in Penn’s Park , taking advantage of its mid-week suppers, which allow you to enjoy chef Mario Korenstein’s creativity without going overboard on your dining budget. This isn’t an overpriced restaurant by any stretch, but the suppers make it a nice mid-week option.

The night we went was cold and blustery, the perfect night for chicken pot pie – so perfect, in fact, Lynne and I both ordered it. Served in a wide dish, topped with a light puff of pastry, the pie’s filling was a blend of fresh vegetables, big slices of chicken, potatoes, balsamic-infused mushrooms and a lightly peppered fontina cheese cream sauce. I’m not a big fan of mushrooms, but these were wonderful.

The Kitchen’s weeknight suppers, their prices ranging from $10 to $14, are served Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights. The restaurant call the portions “sensible,” but I thought they were pretty generous. Live guitar music goes along with the meal on Friday nights. The Summer Kitchen is BYOB, and is in the Gathering Shopping Village at the corner of Route 232 and Penn’s Park Road.

  1. […] The charming and tasty BYOB, The Summer Kitchen, will be closing its doors on September 19th. If you never had a chance to enjoy Chef Mario Korenstein’s delicious cuban-influenced creations, go now. As for the reason, ”a combination of things just make this the right time to close,” says co-owner Dave Van Ess. A bad economy, difficult location (Penns Park, in Wrightstown), a year of bad weather and even some landlord issues. Right now they have no plans to open another restaurant, says Van Ess, so please stop by while you can. Read our post about the Summer Kitchen (one of our first) here. […]

    So sad to hear about Summer Kitchen closing.
    We have been lovers of Mario’s exceptional cooking for almost a decade.
    Please let us know if you re-locate!
    Wishing both Mario and Dave peaceful days ahead!

  3. […] a sad note, The Summer Kitchen in Penns Park closed. This popular BYOB was a fatality of the economy. We’ll certainly miss […]
