Picnic on the Pier

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know by now that Morgan’s Pier is the ultimate summer hot spot in Philly. There’s a huge selection of draft & bottled beers, cocktails, frozen drinks, games, the Little Baby’s Ice Cream‘s cart, DJs & bands on the weekends, an AMAZING view of the Ben Franklin Bridge (Oh, and the Delaware River too, I guess) – and most importantly – FOOD!

The kitchen this year is helmed by none other than Philadelphia Magazine’s Best Chef 2012 winner, George Sabatino. But he’s not serving up your run-of-the-mill bar food; he’s putting his own twist on some classic favorites. Case in point: the burger. Oh, sure. From the outside, it looks like your typical BBQ charred patty on a potato roll. But the patty goes through a fun, scientific adventure before it makes its way to your mouth. First, it’s vacuum-sealed and put into a hot water bath. Then, it’s flash frozen in liquid nitrogen. And finally, the burger is deep-fried (you heard that right) to either medium or well done, topped with a scoop of American cheese, some veggies & their housemade thousand island dressing, and sent to your waiting belly. (It comes paired with a little pickled veggie salad.)

But, if you want fries you can have em. A small order will only set you back $3 and you better bring some friends, because there are a LOT of fries!

The corn on the cob is grilled and slathered with lobster butter, with a lime on the side. At $6, it’s a little pricey for corn, but still pretty tasty.

Wash it all down with a Watermelon Ricky: A Hell or High Watermelon beer poured over watermelon simple syrup & lemon juice:

Morgan’s Pier is a great spot for any type of group, young or old. It’s got one of the most eclectic crowds in the whole city and it has something for everybody. (Seriously, if you bring someone here and they aren’t enjoying themselves, you should probably stop being their friend.) Plus, it’s a great place to watch fireworks on the Riverfront while enjoying a cold beverage or two. So swing by sometime this summer and check it out!
