Main Line Today’s Best of the Main Line (and western suburbs) issue was recently published and included accolades for a few Conshohocken restaurants. Maybe our April Fools’ Day post is more reality than fiction!
Hook and Ladder Skybar & Kitchen was recognized as a critics choice for “Over-the-Top Burger” for the restaurant’s Firemen Burger, From Main Line Today:
Located in an impeccably redone 19th-century fire station, Hook and Ladder touts its signature $99 Firemen Burger. The bottom layer is a Wagyu beef patty wrapped in edible gold leaf. Then comes the massive onion ring and, yes, a poached lobster tail. Other accouterments include truffle aioli, shaved truffle and a cheddar-and-béchamel sauce, all on a brioche bun. Sound excessive? Take a gander at this month’s cover and judge for yourself.
Bar Lucca was recognized for its Italian dessert Panna Cotta by the magazine’s critics. Please note that the Panna Cotta is not a regular menu item, but is offered occasionally as a special. You can find the regular dessert menu here.
From the magazine:
The panna cotta is next level at this popular Conshy eatery. Variations include lime, Meyer lemon, blueberry, lavender and strawberry, and the presentation almost makes this imaginative version of the traditional cooked-cream dessert almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
The tacos at El Limon were recognized by the magazine’s readers.
Blackfish was also recognized by the critics for its “Chef’s Tasting Menu.” From the magazine:
Chef Chip Roman’s flagship BYOB hosts several tasting experiences and provides guests with online tips on which wines to pair with the menu. Seasonal five- or seven-course prix-fixe options include bigeye tuna, smoked Scottish salmon, Peking duck and ruby prawn. Every item is an immaculately executed culinary adventure.
