If you’ve been holding out on throwing yourself into the Wine Week festivities until the weekend, tonight is your chance to catch up on all of the drinking.
London Grill is turning 24 years old this month, and chef Michael McNally is celebrating with four favorite dishes from the restaurant’s past. Each week, the restaurant will serve up a fan-favorite recipe, some of which haven’t seen the light of day for over ten years.
For example, on Wednesday, March 4, you can try “Chili Elizabeth Taylor,” (which was made famous while the actress was filming Cleopatra because she would frequently send her limo driver out to pick her up an order). The following Wednesday, March 11, you can dine on the 2007 Philly Cooks Dish of the Year, Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi. On March 18 they’re serving “HRC” (horseradish-crusted) Salmon, and on March 25 the special will be Szechuan Duck Spring Rolls.

Lobstah. Lobstah and more Lobstah.
August in Fairmount means lobster galore at London Grill, and there’s plenty of drawn butter to go around. The bar and main dining room will offer a special menu celebrating summers favorite crustacean. From the kitchen you can expect a lobster bisque garnished with crème fraiche ($8), the classic New England lobster roll with hand-cut fries ($20) and a savory lobster cheesecake ($14), a cream cheese spread of lobster, peppers and seasonings served with crostini.
If you’re in the mood for something more akin to what they’re serving in Maine, sit down for the three-course New England dinner. Guests start with a house salad, followed by a 1 ¼ pound steamed whole lobster and corn on the cob (with drawn butter of course) and finish with a house-baked berry buckle. The dinner is $32 per person.
