Harvest Seasonal Grill, under construction in Montgomveryville
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.

This guy; cotton candy oysters guy; Mr. Kildare’s, himself. Dave Magrogan is a big deal, and barely anybody knows it.
Philadelphia Business Journal reported that Dave Magrogan, owner of Harvest Seasonal Grill, Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House, and Kildare’s Irish Pub made a little over $40 million dollars last year—and he’s on track to make $50 million in the next. He owns 14 restaurants, and employs 1,200, and is planning to open his 15th (another Harvest) in North Wales, PA this summer.
Those are the kinds of numbers that even make Starr sweat. But then again, that’s not really saying much.

Dave Magrogan (Kildare’s, Doc Magrogan’s) is bringing his Harvest Seasonal Grill and Wine Bar concept to the former Marathon at 40th and Walnut. As you might guess by the name, the restaurant focuses on seasonal menus featuring local farms. The menu for the Glenn Mills location features salads, flatbreads, sandwiches and entrees. The sandwiches are all north of $10 and entrees top out with the $31 filet from Birchrun Hills Farm. The menu also includes dishes under 500 calories for the health-conscious.
