On Saturday, April 6 beginning at 2 p.m., raw bar and restaurant Oyster House will host their fourth-annual Shucking Contest, featuring professional oyster shuckers from across Philadelphia competing for a $200 Grand Prize. An amateur shucking contest will follow the professionals, with guests hoping to earn a $100 Oyster House Gift Certificate. Admission to the shucking contest is $5 per person, and includes all the varieties of the shucked oysters. Oyster House’s bar will be open on a pay-as-you-go basis and bartender will also tap a special firkin of a local craft beer.
“Oyster shucking is an art, and those who do it well rightly take pride in their ability,” says proprietor and third-generation restaurateur Sam Mink, who ate his first oyster at age five. “Our shucking contest gets bigger and better every year; we are proud to host these talented professional and amateur shuckers, and we can’t wait to see who takes home the prize – and the bragging rights – this year!”
The professional shuckers, including competitors from Oyster House and others from renowned Philadelphia-area seafood houses, will be judged by Danya Henninger of Zagat Philadelphia, Marisa Magnatta of WMMR’s “Preston & Steve Show,” and Joey Sweeney of Philebrity on their speed and accuracy as they shuck their way through two dozen oysters, working in heats of three shuckers at a time. A one-second deduction will be made to each shucker’s overall time for each broken shell or ripped oyster. After a winner is crowned, amateur shuckers will face the same guidelines, working on one dozen oysters each for a chance to win a $100 Oyster House gift certificate. Onlookers can enjoy the fruits of the competitors’ labors; the oysters will be passed out to the crowd after each heat.
Metropolitan Gallery 250: The Sidework Series
Background & Philosophy
Metropolitan Gallery 250 is a community arts space that seeks to provide exposure for emerging artists. Expanding upon the art community within Center City. The Gallery’s mission is to connect local art and local business.
Wendy Born, Co-Owner of Metropolitan Bakery along with Co-Owner and Head Baker James Barrett have been a part of the food community in Philadelphia for 25 years and have found that there is a lot of cross-over between the food scene and the art world in Philadelphia. They wanted to create a place where emerging artists could sell their work, and be supported by restaurants and other small businesses.
Their hope is that all customers, friends and colleagues of Metropolitan Bakery & Café will support and be inspired by these great young local artists.
In order to connect the food and art in Philadelphia, Metropolitan Gallery 250 opened in October of 2012.
Metropolitan Gallery 250 is opening its first of a series of exhibits entitled The Sidework Series, showing a range of art by emerging artists that work in the restaurant business. Artists are able to sell their artwork in Metropolitan Gallery and will receive 100% of the commission.
Metropolitan Gallery 250 is an art space located in the heart of Center City across the street from The Philadelphia Art Alliance in Rittenhouse Square.
250 S. 18th Street, Unit 2
Philadelphia, PA 19103

Square 1682 celebrates their expanded dinner service to seven-nights-a-week, offering diners half-off bottles of wine or a complimentary chef’s featured dessert — from Chef de Cuisine Caitlin Mateo’s winter “Sweet Endings” menu — to share per couple every Sunday and Monday night throughout February.
Square 1682 previously offered dinner service Tuesday-Saturday nights, and a limited menu in the lounge on Sundays and Mondays. In addition to Mateo’s new winter menu featuring seasonal favorite “Main Courses,” such as Roasted Acorn Squash and Veal Osso Buco, as well as delicious “Small Plate” options such as Kale Caesar Salad, Winter Beef Ragu and a Scottish Egg, the team at Square 1682 celebrates their expanded service by offering guests something special.
For diners choosing the complimentary dessert option the Chef’s selection may include: Ginger Trifle—spiced ginger cake, caramelized apples, cranberries, and fresh whipped cream; Warm White Chocolate Bread Pudding with Valhrona chocolate sauce and s’mores gelato; Pumpkin Cheesecake with figs, cardamom gelato and house whipped cream.
“We’re really excited to extend our dinner service to seven nights a week. Previously we had a limited menu served in the lounge on Sundays and Mondays. Now, with our new fresh winter menu, we want to be able to offer our full menu every night,” Mateo says.
Square 1682’s extensive and world-spanning wine list is truly something to celebrate on its own, covering all wine-producing continents with a broad range of price points, vintages, and styles from which to select.
“We’re always striving to improve our attentiveness to our guests,” says Square 1682 General Manager Matthew Rafferty. “With that we thought added service was a natural. And giving our Sunday-Monday dinner guests an added incentive helps everyone celebrate our expanded service.”
Additionally, Mateo’s new and popular Express Lunch offerings ride on the heels of Square 1682’s initiative. In check with Square 1682’s exceptional service, Mateo’s $16.82 prix fixe—and all new $20.13—menus expedite lunch for guests and Center City lunch goers, served on a single, stylish wooden tray all at once.

Square 1682’s Chef de Cuisine Caitlin Mateo launches her new lunch menu this week calling for delicious and healthful combinations delivered quickly and efficiently, as well as value packed—making an excellent option for Center City lunch goers with two exceptional prix fixe trays presented all at once — or available à la carte.
Mateo has totally revamped $16.82 prix fixe — and crafted an all-new $20.13— menu.
These three-course lunch options are served on a single, stylish wooden tray so meals are expedited and diners can prioritize, go at their own pace, or speed things up if they need to get back to the office or elsewhere.
As first course options on the $16.82 menu Mateo serves Market Seasonal Soup or
Square Baby Greens and a second course of Braised Pork or Short Rib Sandwich, Roasted Chicken Salad, or Omelet of the Day, made with fresh vegetables, meats and select cheeses. A delicious House-Baked Giant Cookie of the Day finishes off the tray.
Just in time for the New Year, the $20.13 menu boasts a first course choice of Market Seasonal Soup, Square Baby Greens, or Salmon Croquette. Second course options include Shrimp Caesar Salad, Spinach “Chopped” Salad, Brandywine River Texas Longhorn Burger, Housemade Black Bean Burger, Steak Quesadilla or Roasted Halibut Wrap. Mateo serves Panna Cotta and Fresh Fruit Salad for desert.
“We know how busy our clientele is so we worked to present a menu that’s expedited rather quickly, but is also really healthful, delicious and complete. We want our patrons to leave completely satiated — and still on time that post-lunch meeting,” Mateo says. “Leisurely dining is still encouraged as well, of course, but we think more options are a good thing.”
All of the items listed are also available à la carte. Additional new fare also includes the return of Square 1682 wildly popular Bacon Wrapped Dates, Dipping Trio of hummus, baba ganoush, almond red pepper spread and toasted breads, as well as Crispy Calamari. Specials and additions will be added regularly.
