A Diamond in the rough

Located within the former American Silk factory in Frankford, we feature a 1,000-square foot dining room with 16-foot ceilings as well as a 700-square-foot kitchen and a 19-foot bar. The dining room accommodates 60 people seated, or up to 80 guests for cocktail-style events. It also includes parking on site.


The Food

Chef Garfinkel will be bringing his world-class and highly regarded cuisine to the new space at American Silk. His food focuses on fresh seasonal ingredients and looks just as great as it tastes. With inspiration from a range of culinary experts his dishes are unique and diverse.


The Space

The new Balboa Catering at American Silk will host private events, cooking classes, and Supper Clubs. It will also feature a one acre 'farmette' which Chef Alex will utilize to grow produce for our business and help offer low-cost, subsidized produce to our neighbors in the community.


The Art

Sculptor and Designer Steven Earl Weber has designed a gorgeous dinning room for our venue. Steven has hand-painted the walls in black waves that ripple off of a stunning gold boat that hangs from the ceiling. The ambiance is luxe, bold and bright with a very cool vibe.
