Homegrown Restaurant Profile: Rotisseur

Inspired by living out west in California, Aaron Matzkin desired to bring true chicken rotisserie to his native Philadelphia. Upon returning to Philadelphia, Matzkin and his friend Dean Kitagawa set out to serve the freshest and most authentic rotisserie fare possible, in Rotisseur. As Kitagawa is now no longer with the restaurant, Matzkin has found help in the kitchen from Chef Geoff Boehme, formerly of Bar Ferdinand and former sous chef at Speck, Akiko Moorman, who advises Matzkin about recipes and provides the delicious cornbread.

Rotisseur’s ingredients are locally sourced from farms around the Philadelphia area, and the menu is seasonal. All of Rotisseur’s chickens come from Lancaster County and are cage-free, hormone-free, antibiotic-free and meet halal standards. Bites at Rotisseur include multiple sizes of rotisserie chicken (from quarter pieces to a whole bird), scrumptious sandwiches and mouthwatering sides. Samples of homemade sides include mac & cheese, corn muffins, pickled vegetables and various cobblers served only for dinner. Since the dishes are seasonal, make sure to try the peach cobbler in the summer months!

Rotisseur is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday, and patrons should expect a pleasant, intimate dining experience in the quaint 18-seat restaurant.
