Nineteen Eleven BYOB, the newish restaurant from chefs Jon Raffa and Michael Gingras, located at 1911 East Passyunk Avenue, has debuted a new summer menu, added Sunday brunch, and collaborated with Chef Janine Bruno on a new pasta with a charitable initiative and a nod to a Philadelphia legend.

The pasta is called Spinach Gnoccheti, and it's made with Mancuso's ricotta, pancetta, peas, and mint. Proceeds from the dish will go to Mama Mare, a non-profit that helps breast cancer patients and their families, and Bruno was a recipient of their services during her breast cancer treatment.

“We’ve been following Janine’s story and we’ve seen how big she’s getting, and we’re honored to collaborate with her on this pasta,” said Raffa. “It’s sort of an ode to Joey Baldino’s gnocchi at Zeppoli, where Chef Gingras used to work, but with our own spin. We’ve only been open a few short months, and we think this is a perfect opportunity to introduce two new menus while also starting to give back any way we can.”

The new summer dinner menu includes Porgy Toast — house-cured porgy on sourdough with dill-Dijon aioli; Fluke Crudo; Chicken Liver Mousse with peach, hazelnut, and crostini; Tomato Carpaccio; Scallops with corn pudding; Arctic Char; The Chicken — breast roulade, dark meat confit, cherries, green beans, and jus; and a Burger on brioche with bibb lettuce, tomato, Cooper sharp, and bone marrow truffle aioli. An $85 per person chef’s tasting menu is also available.
