Stateside, the East Passyunk pub, has picked up another pedigreed chef.

He's Kevin D'Egidio, an alumnus of Tangerine, The Pass, Lacroix, and most recently Will BYOB.

Among his new dishes: Sausage Stuffed Whole Quail, Vegetable Carbonara, Confit Duck Leg with Red Lentil, Baby Carrot & Za'tar, Petite Filet Au Poivre with Butternut Squash & Chic Pea Panisse, Bahn Mi Pork Terrine, and Moroccan Carrot Soup.

His predecessor, Elijah Milligan, whose resume includes kitchen work at Le Bec-Fin, Vernick, Bar Ferdinand, Parc and Distrito, arrested in October on charges including terroristic threats and assault. His attorney Jonathan Cohen told the Passyunk Post that Milligan was interceding in a squabble between his girlfriend and his girlfriend's sister.

Charges were dismissed on Dec. 9 after two proceedings, according to court records.

D'Egidio's first big event is a Seven Fishes dinner on Dec. 22 - appropriately a seven-course tasting menu for $60 per person with an optional wine pairing.
