The Al Pastor Pizza — made with marinated pork shoulder grilled over fire, tomato-red pepper sauce, mozzarella, diced pineapple and jalapeno and finished with fresh cilantro, radish, pecorino and extra virgin olive oil.

Update: Cinder's soft opening begins Nov. 10 at 4 p.m.

Back in late March, we announced that Cinder would be coming to Rittenhouse. The cider bar and restaurant concept was dreamed up by Teddy Sourias, the U-Bahn and BRU Craft & Wurst owner. Months later, it looks like the restaurant is anticipating an opening date in early November.

In the kitchen, Jonathan Petruce will serve as executive chef. His menu will focus on four key areas:

• Wood-fired pizzas
• Artisanal cheese & charcuterie
• Mussels
• Small plates

As for drinks, there are five core groups making up the 32 draft lines:

• Wild ales — eight choices
• Farmhouse & abbey ales — six choices
• Natural ciders — six choices
• Crisp & golden — six choices
• Rich & malty — six choices

Big cider fans may want to keep an eye on Cinder's Facebook page, where more news will be shared on the restaurant's progression as it happens.


Opening early November
