Smith & Wollensky’s Summer Grill Menu
Smith & Wollensky has launched a new Summer Grill Menu, and it is not just your traditional steakhouse favorites.
PhillyBoy and I enjoyed a unexpectedly fabulous dinner there last week when I went to sample the menu for uwishunu. When I heard “Smith & Wollensky” I immediately thought of a traditional steakhouse experience, but our experience was so different from that.
The steakhouse boasts beautiful dark wood décor, and dishes are served classically from roll carts. However, the summer grill menu is reminiscent of a hip modern beach restaurant. We tried many items, and everything was delicious and beautifully presented. To be honest, I enjoyed the appetizers and salads more than the entrees, but that could have also been because we were full by the time our entrees arrived!
Here are just a few of the Summer Grill menu offerings:
Seared Scallops with Peanut Vinaigrette
Grilled Mozzarella BLT
Lobster Salad (arugula, butternut lettuce, hearts of palm, mango, red pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, scallions, mango-chili vinaigrette)
Spicy Lobster & Avocado Flatbread
Lobster Macaroni & Cheese
Pan Roasted Salmon (fingerling potatoes, colossal crab meat, citrus beurre blanc)
Hash Browns Potatoes
Watermelon & Feta Cheese Salad (We did not get to try this, but I plan on recreating it at home with Athenos Feta- check back in a few days!)
My favorite item by far was the lobster salad, and I would love to go back and have that someday soon. It was fresh, light, unique, and super flavorful.
Next time you are in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square, stop by Smith & Wollensky to try some items from their Summer Grill Menu, which runs through September 6th.
