King of Prussia, PA, US, 2014-1-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — On Monday, January 27, popular neighborhood food-and-drink spot The Pub at Wegmans in King of Prussia, PA (1 Village Drive, 484-690-3560) will debut an enticing New Menu of market-fresh fare, including salads, sandwiches, composed entrees and beer, wine and cocktails chosen specifically to complement the food. They will also add their latest collaboration with local brewery Sly Fox, a German-style malt beer served exclusively at The Pub, to the menu. Executive Chef Chris Happel and Manager Patti Hindsley are thrilled to announce these changes and look forward to sharing these guest-requested updates with fans old and new.
“From the start, we’ve created The Pub as a friendly, welcoming place that our guests feel a strong connection with – so when they asked us for more local craft beers, chef-inspired entrees, greater variety of appetizers and more salads and sandwiches, we listened!” says Kathy Haines, director of Wegmans in-store restaurants and Market Cafés. “As always, all of our dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients from the adjacent market, and these new menu adjustments make The Pub better than ever – a place where guests can enjoy a top-notch burger and local craft beer, close to home, any night of the week.”
New dishes include: Yuengling Beer-Steamed PEI Mussels with shallot-thyme butter and warm baguette; Cajun Kettle Salad with Bronzed Chicken, with romaine, tomatoes, pepper jack cheese, cornbread croutons and Creole mustard vinaigrette; Scallop Salad of spring mix greens, sliced pears, sweet pickled red onion, dried cranberries, shaved carrots, pine nut granola and cranberry-orange dressing; Pub Cheese Burger, an instant classic of eight ounces of beef, grilled to order, with Adams Reserve cheddar, Wegmans thousand island dressing, leaf lettuce and vine-ripened tomato; Beef Short Rib “Bahn Mi” Sandwich, Asian barbecue sauce-glazed, slow-cooked beef short rib with carrot, cabbage, cucumber and cilantro on a toasted roll; Honey-Brined Boneless Pork Chops with potato puree, truffled green beans, apple slaw and country gravy; and Atlantic Farm-Raised Salmon with sautéed spinach, shaved fennel, red onion, tarragon, artichokes, peas and Bouillabaisse sauce. Entrees are now served with sides chosen specifically to complement them and many dishes feature sauces that are also for sale in the market, so guests can pick up a bottle and recreate their meal at home.
One delicious pairing with the new menu items is Sly Fox Sly Ride, a German-style malt beer brewed with four different kinds of hops (Vienna, Pils, Wheat and Caramunich) for a smooth, warming winter brew that was created for and will be served exclusively at The Pub at Wegmans. Previous Sly Fox collaborative beers have been fast favorites with diners, and this latest seasonal creation is sure to join their ranks as among The Pub’s most popular beers.
The Pub also expanded their already-broad list of local craft beers and added a variety of palate-friendly wines by the glass, as well as a rotating seasonal cocktail list. In addition, they now accept reservations over Open Table, meaning that guests who hope to dine at a specific time can book their table in advance and arrive confident that they will be seated right away. Aesthetic changes to the already-cozy space have made it even more inviting, as well, including curtains for privacy and more comfortable low tables.
The Pub at Wegmans serves a market-fresh menu of American cuisine with a focus on creative plates, sandwiches and entrée salads. It is a natural extension of the store’s comprehensive prepared foods section, the Market Café, where they offer dine-in or to-go dishes prepared fresh in their on-site kitchen. The Pub takes that commitment to freshness one step further, with table service and ample seating, plus the full bar, where guests’ dishes are cooked to order from the thoughtful menu.
The Pub also serves a wide variety of local, domestic and international craft beers, including a variety of Pennsylvania favorites, such as Yuengling, Stout’s, Victory and a number of other local breweries on draught. They also offer a selection of wines from around the world, available by the glass or bottle, and an exciting list of original cocktails made from premium spirits and mixers and fresh juice.
The Pub at Wegmans is nestled within the in-store Market Café and features a welcoming atmosphere with glowing mahogany and rich colors, where guests are encouraged to relax with family or friends over a pint or a bite. The casual ambience includes a large wrap-around bar and comfortable dining room, spacious enough for parties, business functions and other private events. The Pub is open for lunch and dinner.
