Two Bells for Olde Bar

olde-bar-bookbinders-940The Inquirer’s Craig LaBan experiences Jose Garces’s reboot of the Olde Bar at the Original Bookbinders. LaBan is particularly impressed with the drinks, calling Olde Bar “one of Philly’s must-sip libation stations.” As for the food, LaBan is disappointed with the snapper soup and dry crab cake.

LaBan does take a liking to chef de cuisine Mike Siegel’s raw bar as well as  the beef fat fries and a fish and chips that now rivals LaBan’s local favorite at the Dandelion.
