In November of 2011, chefs Jason Cichonski and Chip Roman partnered to open Ela, an inventive new American bar and restaurant in Philadelphia’s Queen Village neighborhood. Ela showcases 27-year-old Cichonski, who Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan called “one of our most exciting young chefs,” is combining an approachable menu of innovative dishes with an extensive wine and craft beer program and inspired cocktail list in a rustic-modern setting.<br />“Creatively, it’s wonderfully freeing to prepare food that doesn’t fit into any one genre or style; this is seasonal food, using exceptional ingredients, prepared perfectly,” says Chef Cichonski. Ela is a serious-yet-comfortable restaurant with a menu that that changes frequently throughout the year, to reflect the latest offerings.

Abe Fisher is the most recent restaurant from partners Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook, who are behind Zahav, Percy Street Barbecue, Dizengoff and Federal Donuts. With co-chef Yehuda Sichel, Solomonov and Cook are introducing new ideas to familiar Jewish dishes like gefilte fish, and drawing inspiration from Jewish food traditions around the world -- even things like eating Chinese food on Christmas. Decidedly traif, Abe Fisher corns pork belly in-house for tiny Reubens, smokes whole short ribs cured with Montreal spice for four-person feasts and encourages experimentation with 17 wines by the glass. Abe Fisher has a full bar and daily Happy Hour from 5-6pm.

A sultry steakhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village where old-world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, such as Truffle Creamed Spinach and Goose Fat Potatoes. And be sure to save room for the famed 24-Layer Chocolate Cake. <br /><br />Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut of aged beef isn't the only work of art to marvel upon...just take a look at the walls and tell us you don’t agree. Black and white vintage photos of bordello girls from the original 1900’s Studio Manasse collection reference an era of decadence and seduction.<br /><br />Visit our second NYC location, the new Strip House Midtown at 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, or on the Las Vegas Strip at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
