On Tuesday, May 30, nine stories above Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Assembly Rooftop Lounge will officially debut their new Season Two Menu and Hours. Crafted by Executive Chef Terry White, the menu includes fun seasonal plates perfect for pairing with their more affordable menu of cocktails, wine, and beer, and is influenced by Chef White’s eight years of experience working at the Jersey shore and serving the freshest seafood around. It will nicely complement the bar’s fun new Happy Hour offerings, as well.
New-for-2017 cocktails include Frosé, rosé with Petal & Thorn vermouth and strawberry; and Eternal Springtime, Stateside vodka with St. Germain elderflower liqueur, lemon, rhubarb shrub and club soda.
Chef White’s new summer dishes, which will range in price from $8 to $16, include:
Cold-Smoked Scallops, brown sugar cold-smoked diver scallop with black garlic aioli, sea beans, cucumber, compressed pear-St. Germain and marigolds
Tuna Watermelon Poke, sushi-grade ahi tuna with ripe baby melon, sambal oelek and candied kumquats
