Last week I headed over to the Top of the Tower’s new SkyBrunch (1717 Arch St), which is every Sunday on the 50th Floor of the event space. I think you already know it’s one of my favorite event spaces in the City, because besides the great service it has amazing views of the City even on rainy cloudy days.
Chef Matt Lane’s stations include the Panorama (breakfast pastries,
fruit; Metropolitan Bakery granola, yogurt parfaits); The Sunny Side
(made-to-order omelets, home fries, pecan-smoked bacon, homemade pork
and turkey sausage, chive and crème fraîche scrambled eggs); The Outlook
(fried chicken, pecan waffles, crème brûlée French toast); The Sea
Scape (oyster and crab claw shooters, smoked salmon, and Zento sushi).
There were at least 4 food stations
Plenty of tables
I got there a little late
as the brunch runs 10AM to 2PM
Parking is $10 in the garage below the building, enter on Cherry Street.
But there was plenty of food left and it was fresh
The cost of $50 per person ($25 for kids 12 and under; free for kids 5 and younger) covers all of this plus a brunch cocktail.
I went with my friend Alex Holley. The meal and company was terrific. It was a great place to give Alex an ariel view of Philly and show her all the neighborhoods from this vantage point.
Thanks to Top of the Tower for these photos, cause I was too busy eating to take any. I’ll be back.
