Restaurant Description
Despite the ebb and flow of Philadelphia's restaurant renaissance, one eatery consistently maintains its place in the hearts and stomachs of discerning diners. Now in its third decade, the Sansom Street Oyster House has stayed true to the city's great old fish house tradition while also staying ahead of the curve. Executive Chef and Owner Cary Neff maintains a menu of such classics dishes as fried oysters with chicken salad, crab imperial, and trout amandine, alongside such innovations as St. Peter's fish glazed with sweet and spicy chile, Bronzino a whole Mediterranean sea bass served in a deep-fried crust with a gingery Thai sauce or simply grilled. Neff also offers the best selection of oysters including Westcott Bay, Belon and Kumamotos, many of which cannot be found elsewhere in the region. It is the ideal setting to take in some of the city's rich history, or to host a business dinner for a taste of Philadelphia, and the no-frills style of the old-time oyster house and its rock bottom prices never fail to please.
