Restaurants like Davio’s, which is bringing back a deal they had last year where, on any day that the mercury drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, you can go in and demand a free order of spring rolls. The Davio’s “Cold Weather Special” is available during Monday–Friday, 11:30am–2:30pm and 5:00pm–11:00pm in the bar area only when the weather drops below freezing. It starts today (and, just for the record, its currently 16 degrees outside) and runs through March 19th.
Okay, so we’ve been seeing quite a few lobster deals lately–mostly owing to an oversupply of these fanciest of crustaceans throughout Maine and New England. The result of this surfeit of lobster is cheap prices for consumers, which is never a bad thing.
Today, we get word that Doc Magrogan’s in UCity and West Chester are passing on the savings with blow-out lobster sales running straight through the month of November. The big draw is Old Bay-steamed lobsters served with corn on the cob and baby potatoes for just $12 a pound (basically a buck over the super-cheap prices you can get on live lobsters down at the Reading Terminal Market), but that’s not all that’s on the menu…
Dave Magrogan is expanding his restaurant empire. Already 14 restaurants strong, Magrogan is hiring managing partners, general managers, executive chefs and sous chefs for three restaurants he is planning on opening before the end of the year. Another Harvest Seasonal Grill is scheduled to open in Montgomeryville in August. A fifth Doc Magrogran’s (location unannounced) is in the works and Magrogan is promising a new concept to open in Center City. No word on what that concept will be, other than it will not be a 1920s diner.
If you’re interested in any of the open positons with the Dave Magrogan Group, email resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
