Revolution Taco Expands Into Burgers, sorta… SugarHouse Absorbs The Palm

Starting this week, Revolution Taco (2015 Walnut Street) debuts a
secret, off-menu burger (6oz) (BTW a quarter pounder weighs 4 ounces.) The Revolution Burger will not appear on the
menu or website, and will only be available by request at the counter.
Only six will be made per day, and once they are sold that is it for the
day!

The Revolution Burger is an Indian Ridge local dry-age beef
blend of rib-eye and t-bone, topped with house bacon, with Cooper
cheese, with roasted poblano crema and avocado chimichurri sauce. The
bacon is made from Stryker Farms pork belly that is cured in-house with
garlic and cascabel chilis. Served on a brioche roll from Breakin’ Bread
Bakery. The burger will sell for $10.00 each.

PHILADELPHIA—February
23, 2016—
SugarHouse
Casino and The Palm Restaurant jointly announced today that SugarHouse will make
job offers to all of The Palm’s
Philadelphia staff. The Palm announced in mid-February that its iconic South
Broad Street location will close for renovations after dinner service on
February 29, 2016. The Palm, located in The Bellevue since 1989, will re-open in
late fourth quarter 2016 or early 2017, when its dramatic update will be
revealed.
Until
then, The Palm’s
talented front- and back-of-house teams, led by general manager Jim Haney, were
facing uncertainty about their future. 
Enter SugarHouse Casino, whose $164 million expansion on Delaware Avenue
includes seven food and beverage outlets—among them, Hugo’s
Frog Bar & Chop House by Chicago’s
famed Gibsons Restaurant Group.
“We
have enormous respect for The Palm brand, Jim Haney and his team. They have a
well-earned reputation for delivering superior, personalized
service,”
said
Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino.  “They’re
also our friends. They’re
facing a challenging situation, and we’re
actively recruiting. It seemed like an opportunity for a win-win.”
“We
are thrilled SugarHouse Casino is welcoming our Philadelphia family to their
team,” said Jeff Phillips, chief operating officer of Palm Restaurant Group.
“Many of our employees have been here since opening day and are not able to
relocate for opportunities in other Palm cities. Knowing that their interruption
in employment will be minimal, or better yet, non-existent, is the best-case
scenario.”
