Friday Saturday Sunday Has a New Chef


samantha-orskog-400Friday Saturday Sunday has been a Center City Philadelphia institution for 41 years. And for the first time, the restaurant has a female chef. Samantha Orskog comes to FriSatSun from Seattle where she graduated from culinary school. Orskog has just rolled out her first menu for fall. The menu has enough favorites to keep regulars happy but enough new dishes to draw people back who haven’t been to the 21st Street restaurant in quite some time.
