Blackfish’s Chip Roman is working on opening a confectionery shop and cafe in the space next to Blackfish. The space was most recently an attorney’s office.
The candy line is called Tradestone Confections and Roman has been posting a lot of photos of his creations on Facebook over the past few weeks. The above photo is of caramels and is from Tradestone’s Facebook page. For Tradestone Confections, Roman is partnering with former Le Bec-Fin pastry chef Fred Ortega.
Last week Roman spoke with Michael Klein from Philly.com and Klein reported that in addition to confectionery, the shop will “offer soups, salads and sandwiches in a grab-and-go format”. According to Klein, look for a late October opening.
