Food

For travelers who love unique food, architecture, history and supporting a multigenerational family-owned business, head to BLDG 39 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for a well-rounded night out.

 

Housed in a 1917, wartime-era arsenal warehouse, BLDG 39 is a combination commissary kitchen space for local food truck owners and event space. The rustic building boasts beautiful backdrops for weddings, culinary tastings, business meetings and other social events. The business is owned by the Weizer family: a trio of tradesman that put their knowledge and skills together, including of technology from Brandon Weizer; carpentry from his father, Craig Weizer; and master plumbing by his grandfather, Fred Weizer, into purchasing commercial real estate. Over the years and through many leaps and hurdles, they made their first large building purchase of a 50,000-square-foot property called The Atlas Building that housed artist studios, woodshops, office space and residential units.

In 2019, the family sold The Atlas Building and acquired BLDG 39. With 2,800 square feet of shared kitchen space, the facility offers its tenants flat-top grills, deep fryers, burner stoves, 20-quart mixers, commercial dish washers, walk-in refrigerator space and extra storage in the basement.

 

On May 1, 2021, BLDG 39 hosted its first collaborative dinner of Polish and Portuguese cuisine from Mom Mom’s Kitchen and Cozinha. Each food truck brought its own cultural flare. The dinner featured a delicious, sit-down, five-course tasting menu, a DJ, photobooth and live pendulum painting demonstration. Guests were given the full experience in the warehouse building with large garage doors that let the spring breeze and trendy music float through the air. Featured dishes included chlodnik, a chilled beet soup; bacalhau and potato pierogis; piri piri chicken; stuffed cabbage; and an olive oil cake.
