Ice Bar, Take Two: Pegsicle Reborn

Pegsicle1

It was a good plan: Give an amateur ice carver (Peter Woolsey) some chainsaws, a set of Japanese ice chisels and a whole lot of ice in the middle of a Philadelphia winter and let him go nuts carving an ice bar outside of La Peg. There would be cocktails, mulled wine, a shot luge. The cold days and freezing nights would keep the whole thing together for a couple weeks at least, just so long as…the temperatures…uh…

With 2016 coming to a close, we’re taking this week to look back at the year in restaurants. And while things didn’t start off great (for starters, two of the first six restaurants I reviewed were closed before the year was done), with the spring came a turning point and the opening of some of the best restaurants of the year.

So let’s keep going, shall we? We pick things back up in March with the review of the new steakhouse that came in to take the place of Fountain at the Four Seasons…
