Jason Cichonski Soft Opening at The Gaslight in Old City Last Night. Guess Who Stopped By…


 Last night Jason Cichonski invited a few friends over to check out his new bar/restaurant The Gaslight, in Old City at 120 Market St. and watch a little TV.

I caught up with Jason who introduced me to his chef de cuisine James Fujioka who was with him at Ela and now will over see The Gaslight. Over the past week the two have had a few soft openings, but the actual grand opening will be on February 17, 2014.



Candice Lauren, Aaron Repucci, Tara Marie, Jen Carroll, Billy Riddle Sam Shoap, (who works as campaign manager to Jared Solomon who I used to work for at Kohn, Swift & Graf.) and the soon to move to LA to be a big star, Cheryl Vu. Not pictured Joe Corrigan, Brian Sims campaign manager, who stepped away for a minute and was out of ear shot.

 A nice crowd was on hand to try some delicious menu items.
 Peanut Butter Cup Pudding. Everything is edible. Katie Griffin, of Katie Griffin Casting (currently casting the host thing for PHS)
 There’s a whole section of fun chips and dips to choose from
These chicken wings were delicious, and I know a thing or two about wings. Above the wings is the pickle plate.
 Nick Elmi are #TopChef and the crowd erupts

 After everyone left I took some photos.
 The 2nd bar

 I love the eclectic chars

Amazing wall coverings: Reclaimed DOORS line the wall.
Look who’s here Joe from @philawoodcraft and girlfriend Tina. He did the tables and those great doors. Aren’t they great, and he’s local.
