Shake Shack and Spread Bagelry are two of the newest - and most popular - additions). Seafood Unlimited, first launched by David and Judi Einhorn in 1988, has just reopened near the Spruce Street corner with more space, a new look, later hours and a refreshed menu.
The bar is now double in size with 10 seats, complemented by eight new taps pouring craft beer and a reverse happy hour with specials offered every night from 9 PM-close. Half a dozen seats have been added to the dining room, which now sports a larger version of a colorful mural by Magic Gardens artist Isaiah Zagar. To make sure the expanded capacity maintains a great atmosphere, new ceiling tiles have been installed that keep decibel levels at a pleasing level.
Seafood classics like clam chowders and fresh fish have been joined on the menu by new options such as fish tacos, a salmon burger made with both smoked and fresh salmon, and mini lobster rolls. The restaurant is open daily at 5 PM (270 S. 20th St.; 215-732-3663).
