The vibrant new restaurant, helmed by Pennsylvania locals Executive Chef Carmen Cappello and General Manager Jeff Downey, offers a sprawling craft beer list of over 90 local, regional, and global craft brews, complemented by classic American cuisine with unique twists.
Over a quarter of the immense draft selection at City Works is sourced from breweries around Philadelphia, including Crunch from Manayunk Brewery, DirtWolf from Victory Brewing Company, Sour Pale Ale from Free Will Brewing Company, Royal Weisse from Sly Fox Brewing Company, and many others. Beers are offered in full-sized portions, as well as 6 oz. tasting portions to provide guests the opportunity to taste and enjoy the wide selection. Pre-selected flights are on the menu, and a build-your-own flight option is available as well. With a constantly rotating draft list, there is always a new rare brew on tap.
The dining menu offers guests a wide selection of options for a business lunch, a dinner date, or game-watching, including Duck Confit Nachos, Wild Mushroom Flatbread, and the namesake City Works Burger topped with aged white cheddar, lettuce, dill pickle, vine-ripened tomato, served on a toasted brioche bun. Entrees include a chipotle maple-glazed Pork Chop, Smoked BBQ Ribs with house-made BBQ sauce, mascarpone creamed corn, coleslaw, and Idaho thick cut fries, and an Atlantic Salmon with braised fennel, oven dried tomatoes and crème fingerling potatoes. With a focus on fresh food and brilliant flavors, 98% of the menu is made from scratch.
The 8,000 square foot restaurant and bar features state-of-the-art A/V capabilities, 14 flat screen TVs, four of those being massive 110”quad screens, and semi-private event offerings for groups and parties, making it ideal for game-day viewing.
