Eli Kulp, the award-winning chef of the restaurants Fork, High Street on Market, and a.kitchen, suffered serious injuries in the derailment of the Amtrak train Tuesday night and was being treated, a representative said.
Kulp, 37, has enjoyed great success since moving to Philadelphia from New York in 2012 to become chef at Fork, in Old City. He won best new chef last year from Food & Wine magazine for his work at a.kitchen on Rittenhouse Square, which he and business partner Ellen Yin operate
In late 2013, he and Yin created High Street in Old City, which Bon Appetit last year named as the second best new restaurant in the United States. The Inquirer's Craig LaBan named Kulp chef of the year for 2013.
