  In February 2018, Chef George Sabatino joined Rooster Soup Co. as Executive Chef.
  A New Jersey native, Chef Sabatino’s decade-long career in restaurants started in the kitchens of
  pioneering Philadelphia chef and now longtime mentor – Marcie Turney. Sabatino first cooked in
  Chef Turney and partner Valerie Safran’s Mexican restaurant, Lolita where he was soon promoted to
  Sous Chef then Chef de Cuisine of Bindi, Turney’s modern Indian restaurant which earned a Three-Bell
  review from Philadelphia Inquirer food critic, Craig LaBan. In 2010, Sabatino became the
  Chef de Cuisine of Barbuzzo, which would be his final restaurant with the Turney and Safran duo,
  and was a chef role which began to cement Sabatino on Philadelphia’s culinary map. Philadelphia Magazine
  named Sabatino the 2012 “Best Chef” while at the helm of East Passyunk’s favorite gastropub, Stateside.
  The following year, Philadelphia Magazine named Stateside “Best Restaurant”. In 2015, Sabatino and his
  partner opened their own restaurant, Aldine, in Rittenhouse Square – earning a Three-Bell review from the
  Philadelphia Inquirer for his fine-tuned focus on vegetables and thoughtful culinary-style.
  Now at Rooster Soup, Chef Sabatino is just getting started.

  The best way to support Rooster Soup Co. (besides eating here, of course) 
  is to volunteer at the Broad Street Ministry's Hospitality Collaborative. 

If you're a hospitality professional interested in working at Rooster Soup Co., 
  we'd love to hear from you.

Check our our generous partners.
  In 2014, Broad Street Ministry and Federal Donuts partnered with more than 1,500 supporters to crowdfund a    restaurant that would convert unused food into meals and services for people who need it most.

  Every week, Federal Donuts turns 500 pounds of spare chicken parts into the broth that becomes the     backbone of Rooster Soup Company. With your simple and generous act of eating a meal here, you are     helpingto provide hospitality to those who are often least likely to receive it.  

  Through its Hospitality Collaborative, Broad Street Ministry served more than 76,000 meals in 2016. But it is     NOT a soup kitchen. Guests are seated by a host and eat a three course meal served by a volunteer waitstaff    and prepared by a professional chef and kitchen crew. It’s the same hospitality we aim for here. 

  And that’s not all. BSM is the mailing address for more than 3,000 people, enabling them to be eligible to get     an ID, housing, employment and benefits. There is a clothing closet, personal care packages, medical care,     legal services, benefits and housing assistance. The list goes on and on. 

  But all of these services cost money. And that’s where you come in. 100% of the profits of this restaurant    
  support the Hospitality Collaborative’s mission of providing meals and social services for Philadelphia’s most     vulnerable citizens. 

  So from everyone at Broad Street Ministry, Federal Donuts and Rooster Soup Company, thank you! 

  Hospitality is fundamental. Pass it on.
  Our semi-private room seats 24 and is perfect for your intimate 
  celebration, including birthday parties, baby showers, casual dinners, office 
  get togethers and other feel good moments. Whole restaurant buyouts are 
  also available. For more information, please email
