A Philadelphia restaurant has scored a big award.
“We were recognized in Bon Appetit as having one of the best daily specials in the country, and that’s our MidAtlantic meatloaf with mushroom gravy.”
That’s Dan Stern (right), chef and owner of MidAtlantic Restaurant and Taproom, in the University City neighborhood of West Philadelphia.
He says you probably know meatloaf, but not thismeatloaf:
“We didn’t just throw all the ingredients raw in there. We actually cooked the onions and the garlic and the leeks and things like that, and then you fold it into your eggs and your seasonings and bread crumbs, then take all that and fold it into the meat. Then we just finished it on the grill and hit it with some of our homemade beef and mushroom gravy. Brings new life to meatloaf.”
And the restaurant makes everything they serve, including the condiments from scratch.
