London Grill debuted their new sister restaurant, Paris Wine Bar (2303 Fairmount Avenue, 215-978-4545), in the spring of 2012; Berch McNally, who has long been at the forefront of the city’s craft beer and cocktail movements, is proud to bring the same vision and focus to local wines in a charming, French-inspired setting next door to London Grill.
Specials and Events:
On Wednesday, December 13 from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., owner Terry Berch will host brewer Carol Stoudt of Stoudts Brewing for a festive 30th Anniversary Celebration. The pioneering local craft brewery was founded in 1987 in nearby Adamstown, PA; a beer distributor introduced Carol to Terry when installing the bar’s hand pump, and London Grill became one of the first bars to serve their beers soon after. For this party, London will pour four Stoudts beers, including their famed house beer, Willie Sutton Lager, named for the escaped convict Willie Sutton – who reportedly stopped at the neighborhood tavern (now London Grill) after escaping from nearby Eastern State Penitentiary; he was apprehended mid-pint and returned to prison.
2303 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia PA.
