University City’s City Tap House is honoring Eagles quarterback Nick Foles with a dish, Catfish #9. The entree is Foles’ favorite, fresh catfish. At City Tap House, chef Chad Vetter is soaking the fish in buttermilk and then deep frying it. The catfish is accompanied by cornmeal crusted green tomatoes, Andouille white cheddar grits and Creole cocktail sauce. The Catfish #9 is $21 and 25-percent of the sales will be donated to the Eagles Youth Partnership.
Chef Vetter, who specializes in Southern cuisine was excited to learn the red-hot quarterback’s favorite food is fried catfish. ”We’re big Eagles fans here at City Tap House, and we have caught Nick Foles mania over the past few weeks” said Vetter. He and his staff might even don number 9 jerseys this week.
The Catfish #9 will only be available for a limited time. Foles, will hopefully remain hot for a long time.

Out-of-town breweries coming to Philadelphia for a week’s worth of events sure seems to be a thing. Starting tonight and running through next weekend, Brooklyn’s Sixpoint is hosting a series of events. #GettingWarmer is Sixpoint’s celebration of its new winter seasonal, Global Warmer. The beer is described as an imperial red ale with toasted malts and “dynamic hop character.” Global Warmer weighs in at 7% alcohol by volume.
The kickoff event is at Lucky’s Last Chance in Manayunk. In addition to the winter seasonal, five other Sixpoint beers will be pouring and flights will be available.
City Tap House has recently welcomed a new executive chef. Chef Chad Vetter has been working at the University City beer bar since April before ascending to be the top guy in the kitchen. Vetter previously lived in South Carolina where he worked at Sea Pines Resort, overseeing five restaurants. Vetter is originally from Levittown, PA and now resides in Philadelphia with his wife, who is expecting their first child.
