Morgan’s Pier Gets a New Chef


Morgan’s Pier, which opened on the Delaware riverfront two summers ago has made a splash each year with a significant name in the kitchen.

In Morgan’s Pier inaugural year it was David Katz of the much loved Mémé who ran the restaurant operation. Last year, the ownership group that includes Avram Hornick and Sean Agnew tapped George Sabatino who had just made a name for himself at Stateside.

This year, it will be another name that’s familiar to Philadelphia restaurant fans. David Gilberg, who was a critical darling at his Koo Zee Doo will be taking on the task of feeding the masses this year.

Gilberg is promising a backyard barbecue/summertime picnic vibe. The chef is looking forward to getting back into the kitchen and is assembling his staff now.
