Craft and Claw Opens in Old City Tonight

Old City is no longer just for frat boys and Jersey tourists. The Khyber Pass Pub is serving serious craft beer to discerning locals, Fork has a new chef and revamped fine-dining menu, and Revolution House is serving gourmet Neapolitan pies. Further proof of the transition: instead of sports pub Mad River, which closed two months back, 126 Chestnut is now home to high-end seafood house Craft and Claw.

Tonight is opening night for the new spot, a venture from partners Max Tucker, John Durkin and Mike Mastellone, who also own Sansom Street’s Ladder 15 and Bond Street Social in Baltimore. We stopped in for a preview visit, and were rewarded with tastes of crab in many forms, plus a very tasty cocktail. Read on to find out when you can get all-you-can-eat crustaceans, what else is on the menu and what to expect when you go.
