Philadelphians have been eagerly awaiting the return of Susanna Foo to Center City Philadelphia. The chef who owned the highly acclaimed Susanna Foo on Walnut Street for 22 years, closed her eponymous restaurant in 2009. In July of 2014 she announced her return to Center City and now there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Though the accompanying photo shows there’s still a ways to go before Susanna Foo opens SUGA at 1720 Sansom Street, there is news to report. The restaurant has a Facebook page as well as a slick new logo. And on the Facebook page, the restaurant has teased out several of the dishes that will make the final menu.
Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen has been open in Radnor for nine years. But on Sunday, June 14th the Chinese restaurant will close. But as Foo herself says, “when one door closes, another opens.” Foo and her son Gabriel are closing to focus on their next project, SuGa at 1720 Sansom Street. SuGa will mark Foo’s return to Center City. Between 1987 to 2009, Susanna Foo was one of the most highly regarded restaurants in the city.
SuGa is looking to open this fall. Susanna Foo Gourmet Kitchen will be running specials now through its Sunday closing.
Originally SuGa was to have Susanna Foo’s chef de cuisine Anne Coll in the kitchen, but Coll recently signed up with Chester County’s Whip Tavern.
Susanna and Gabriel Foo sent the following letter out to their customers today.
