Red Owl Tavern

(The following is a special series on Bluejeanfoodcritic.com written by guest contributing writer William Knowles. He highlights his passions of of trying something new whenever the opportunity presents itself, or possibly something old, but new again since it has been a while. I hope you enjoy his very special perspective that I am sure many of you can relate to. Follow him on his exciting journey “Around Town”)

On Wednesday evening, April 22nd, I attended an open house at the Red Owl Tavern at 433 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia,  spotlighting the debut of new menus by Chef Jorge Chicas.  The new establishment situated at the Hotel Monaco in the heart of Independence Mall featured live music, samplings of numerous dishes and drink for those attending.

The food offerings at Red Owl are across the board, from seafood options, steaks and burgers to finger foods and standard pub fare.  The restaurant opens early and serves breakfast from 7-11 AM, with a unique menu offering that is refreshing to see.  The ambiance is one of the main selling points – with large dining and bar space downstairs, more quaint seating on a balcony upstairs, and outdoor seating when the season permits.  Whether it’s a party to watch a game, or just a quiet date night, you can find either at this locale…

The Red Owl will soon find its niche in the city with its fantastic location and casual approach to fine dining.  Stop in to try their new menu items, have a craft beer, or enjoy a happy hour after leaving the office after a hard day.  I will see you soon “Around Town”…
