James, the bar and restaurant Launched a New Menu for their Gastropub
HD1_1398 (Custom)

According to my friends at Wikipedia: The term “gastropub” was coined in 1991, when David Eyre and Mike Belben took over The Eagle pub in Clerkenwell, London. Traditionally, British pubs were drinking establishments and little emphasis was placed on the serving of food. If pubs served meals they were usually basic cold dishes such as a ploughman’s lunch. I think we all can agree, especially the Yelpers of Philadelphia, that James, the bar/restaurant at 1835 Arch Street has delicious food.


Recently they updated their menu with new choices, at affordable prices. I stopped by and took a few photos of the new menu items.
