PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The new Barnes Foundation museum is now open on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, with lots of amenities that didn’t exist at its Merion location.

Chef Andrew Perekupka (top photo) says the new restaurant is called The Garden.  What inspired the menu?

“Several different things,” he tells KYW Newsradio.  “What you’ll see on our menu are several French influences, and that kind of came with some of the French artists that are hanging within the museum here.”

To eat there, though, you’ll need an admission ticket to the Barnes.

Meanwhile, over in the 1400 block of Ridge Avenue, in the triangle plot of land where Ridge, Fairmount Avenue, and 15th Street intersect, the Francisville Farmers Market is opening this Saturday for the first time this season.

How has Philly Beer Week evolved over the years?

“Like a frothing beer under pressure!” Russell says, grabbing a handy simile.  “It’s exploding under the rim!  It’s the biggest beer event of its kind.  We have close to a thousand events stretched over 10 days, at almost 200 different bars and restaurants around the city.”
