Chris Lee To Open Sophia On East Passyunk Avenue

The Michelin decorated, James Beard acclaimed, four-bell adorned Chris Lee has returned to Philadelphia and he’s now working to turn Salt & Pepper into Sophia, a collaboration between himself and Salt & Pepper’s Joe Massara. According to Michael Klein, the goal is to open before New Years and then close again for a larger renovation that will include new fling-out windows and a new bar.

And come spring there will be a rooftop chef’s table and rear patio.

As for Chris Lee’s menu, expect a neighborhood friendly menu at the bar and more ambitious American fare in the dining room.
