Rise And Shine, Risotto Balls! Taylor Gourmet Tries Breakfast

Last night, the hoagie honchos behind 14th Street's new fancy sandwich shop, Taylor Gourmet, unveiled their latest barrage of Philadelphia-themed foodstuffs. This time, the lineup targets an entirely new demographic: breakfast diners. The new weekend morning menu (also offered late Friday and Saturday nights) features seven styles of egg-topped hoagies, including one drizzled with a homemade beer cheese sauce. Another option: risotto balls. Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, the orbs come stuffed with sausage, bacon, pork roll and American cheese. Free samples passed out during the splashy launch party were served with a cup of that creamy house beer cheese sauce for dipping. In a word: Luscious. Taylor's new breakfast fare is available only at the 14th Street location, beginning Feb. 4.

  • no lunch for me

    Leaving later than usual, for my work commute, I needed to bring lunch. Remembering this I tried to stop at Taylor to get something to go. They were not service.g breakfast or any other food and said that they do not open until 11 am. In fact they do not have any posted hours, but the chairs on top of the tables was a clue that 10 am is not going to get you any food.
