Hickory Lane American Bistro Coupons and Deals
According to Craig LeBan's review, chef Matt Zagorski's famed burgers will get you in the door of his new restaurant Hickory Lane American Bistro, but you'll find plenty more to whet your appetite: • $80 ($115 value) for a five-course dinner and wine-tasting menu on December 5 • From 7 to 9 p.m., you'll be served the chef's selection of soup, salad, fish entrée, meat entrée, and dessert -- each accompanied by a wine from the Rhone region A Rare Reputation Fairmount Avenue is the latest stop in Chef Matt Zagorski's rise to greatness in this city's fierce food scene. The young chef began his culinary career at Neil Stein's Striped Bass, then worked with celebrated Chef Jean-Marie Lacroix at Lacroix in the Rittenhouse Hotel. Tirelessly ambitious, he soon became Executive Chef at Rouge on Rittenhouse Square, where he was named one of the "2006 Top Ten Chefs in Philadelphia" by Philadelphia Style Magazine and "Best of Philly" seven times -- and where he became known as a burger extraordinaire. LeBan shows appreciation for many dishes in Zagorski's new, sophisticated neighborhood bistro, which presents quality ingredients with solid technique, style, and consistency. But nothing beats the patty de resistance -- custom-ground brisket, filet, and deckle topped with melty Cabot cheddar -- a meaty beauty that's "picked up some extra beefy swagger along the way."
