Philly’s restaurant scene is heating up, with three new concepts arriving this month.Look forward to Loch Bar’s tasty menu with dishes like the Scottish Salmon.
LOCH BAR Calling all seafood lovers—one of the city’s largest raw bars is officially here at Loch Bar Philadelphia (lochbar.com). Situated at the base of Arthaus Condominiums, the fourth location from Atlas Restaurant Group is sure to reel in foodies with Mid-Atlantic fare, as well as an expansive whiskey list, local craft beer and handcrafted cocktails. Completing the experience is music seven days a week from local artists—an homage to the property’s historical significance as the former site of Philadelphia International Records.
Owner and co-founder of High Street Hospitality Group, Ellen Yin
HIGH STREET The beloved High Street (highsthospitality.com) is finally making its grand return this month with a focus on all things local. Zeroing in on local grains, bread farms and vendors, chef Christina McKeough curated a menu spanning seasonal, handmade pastas, pizzas and entrees, along with vegetable-forward small plates and heavier items like a classic American-style burger. To quench your thirst is a beverage program by a.kitchen’s general manager Harry Jamison that boasts locally sourced natural wines. In addition to the full-service, 3,400-square-foot restaurant, guests can book “The Back Room”—a private dining, meeting and reception space inspired by the cuisine of their sister concept Fork.
SIN Steakhouse is from the creative minds of owners Justin Veasey, Mike Connors and William F. Muhr Jr.
SIN STEAKHOUSE As the newest arrival to Northern Liberties’ Restaurant Row, SIN Steakhouse (sinphiladelphia.com) is not your average chophouse. The two-million-dollar project lives up to its name, “Steak Italian Nightlife,” by providing a dining experience where music and entertainment pair with unbeatable food and drinks. Inside the sprawling 4,750-square-foot restaurant, a moody, upscale aesthetic with black, gray, silver and white tones serves as the ideal backdrop for showstopping cuisine. Italian bites like a tableside cheese wheel pasta and premium cuts dot the menu, pairing perfectly with specialty cocktails, such as the espresso martini—authentic espresso beans from Italy, Stoli, vanilla, Kahlúa, Disaronno, Frangelicco, a splash of Bailey’s and a chocolate sugar rim. See you at SIN.
