Brian Ashby, winner of Food Network 50 best brunches, is bringing his talents to our farm. 8th and Union Kitchen will be cooking for you on Wednesday July 26th in our barn. Brian studied at the University of Delaware with a degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management. After completing his bachelors, he spent the next year at Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney Australia immersed in French cuisine. Once he returned to the US, he went to work for James Beard nominated chef Jay Caputo at Espuma in Rehoboth Beach. The next few years were spent living in NYC and LA working for Michelin starred chefs, April Bloomfield at The Spotted Pig, Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park, and Brendan Collins at Waterloo and City. Before returning to Delaware, he had the opportunity to open a restaurant in the caribbean off the coast of Honduras. Finally in April of 2015 8th & Union Kitchen was born, where he has been ever since.
8th and Union Kitchen is a wonderfully rustic restaurant located in a little Italy neighborhood in Wilmington. The menu showcases creative food items by mixing American flavors with some Mexican and Southeast Asian specialties. They feature burgers, pad thai, pho, and a whole variety of small plates. The majority of our menu can be gluten free and can also be prepared vegetarian or vegan.
