MUD HEN TAVERN's food, drinks and inviting atmosphere offers an affordable dining experience for the area. Susan and Executive Chef and Partner Kajsa Alger will be preparing a wide variety of rustic dishes and bar food, with the occasional global inflections that these beloved chefs naturally bring to the table. The bar team, led by Morgan Fox (Upstairs II, Pourtal Wine Bar), alongside mixology consultant Tricia Carr (formerly Alley), have curated a beverage program that offers a vibrant and accessible selection of international wines, local craft beers and artisanal cocktails that complement Mud Hen Tavern’s cuisine. The refurbished space includes plenty of booths and communal tables, as well as an expanded bar with a draft beer system, all in the front room to allow patrons to easily walk in for drinks or dinner. The outdoor patio offers a more relaxing atmosphere for reservations, larger groups and private events. <br /><br />

"Though longtime fan and follower of the chef-owner, dating back to City days, we won't go back. Food was eh at best. Veggie burger was a bean paddy - with no flavor and undercooked. Kale and brussell sprouts salad would have been much better chilled. The artichoke was good, but so what. Just nothing special or worth the money here. By comparison, Black Market in Studio City does this type of tavern tapas much better."

Located at 2031 Walnut Street in the Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia, Vernick Food & Drink is an inviting neighborhood bistro. Chef-owner Gregory Vernick, a Cherry Hill, NJ native, focuses on using extraordinary regional products to create a menu of approachable, globally-inspired dishes. The "Drink" side of Vernick Food & Drink features homemade sodas, as well as a carefully crafted selection of domestic and imported wines and beers and perfectly poured cocktails.
