Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant
Popular Philadelphia bartenders Shawn Gormley and Nicolas Moore have unveiled what has been cooking on the first floor of the 200 year-old historic property at 120-122 Market Street, on the southeast corner of Market and Letitia Streets. It’s Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant (PBR) — an airy 75-seat gastro pub promising innovative comfort food, hand-crafted beers, inventive cocktails, and friendly service.
The sleek space delivers exposed brick walls, original steel beams, white butcher tile left over from longtime occupant Youngs Meats and fifty three feet of bar top split between two bars, made from a Spalted Silver Maple tree with ambrosia swirls.
PBR menu tops off at $20. Standouts include: crispy eggplant fries ($6); a seasonal cheese plate with house made garnishes ($16); a PBLT featuring pork belly confit, iceberg lettuce, tomato and pancetta mayonnaise ($11); a scrapple cheesesteak topped with provolone “wit” fried egg ($9); and red winebraised veal cheek with Parmigiano Reggiano and figs ($20). Saturday and Sunday brunch will feature seasonally inspired pancakes, as well as a variety of hearty breakfast dishes.
Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant is open Mondays through Fridays from 4 pm to 2 am, and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 2 am.
