Things have not been easy for Adam Volk and partners at Redcrest Kitchen in Queen Village.
Three weeks after they signed the lease at Sixth and Bainbridge Streets in July 2021, a city water main outside ruptured, sending torrents of water through the neighborhood and into the restaurant’s basement. The restaurant, with a stylish decor, finally opened in October 2022, offering upscale, destination dining with a creative menu that never caught on.
Now, eight months in, Redcrest Kitchen has become what Volk calls “a simple neighborhood joint.”
Redcrest’s new menu, starting this week, has lower prices and more sandwiches and bar snacks. Redcrest’s signature fried chicken, a holdover from Volk’s former chicken shop on East Passyunk Avenue, is front and center.
