Philadelphia, PARoyal Tavern Reopens After 43 Months of Dormancy - After a 43-month hiatus, Royal Tavern, a beloved South Philly neighborhood bar, has reopened its doors. Owners Stephen Simons and David Frank have returned with a revamped menu, ensuring the cozy atmosphere that made the place famous has been maintained. The interior has received a complete renovation, with new additions like comfortable bench seating and ornate wood and stained-glass accents that add a touch of elegance to the space. However, one thing that has remained unchanged is the 12-seat bar, a tavern staple.

General Manager Sam Benson enthusiastically confirms that the bar is still the same, offering the same friendly and welcoming vibe that patrons remember.  The all-new menu, created by Executive Chef Nic Macri, has something for everyone. Diners can now enjoy a delectable range of dishes such as porchetta, smoked beef round, housemade sausages and charcuterie, vegan gyro and cheesesteak, and even seitan skewers and wings for those with dietary preferences.

Of course, one highlight that continues to steal the show is the famous Royal Tavern burger. With its mouthwatering combination of smoked gouda, chili mayo, caramelized onion, pickled long hots, and nestled in a perfectly toasted sesame-seeded bun, this burger has become a legend in its own right.

Managing the bar are industry veterans from Triangle Tavern, including Director of Operations Lopi Asch and Assistant General Manager Brian Martin Scott. With their expertise and experience, guests can expect top-notch service and a warm, inviting atmosphere.
