A Scott Schroeder Menu Takeover at Brigantessa; Ruth's Chris Could Be on the Move

Plus, get half-priced burgers delivered to your door.

EAST PASSYUNK On Thursday, April 2, Brigantessa will hand over control of its spuntini station (that is, the array of snackish small plates served from the bar) to chef Scott Schroeder (South Philly Tap Room, American Sardine Bar). Or, as Schroeder put it, "All the time and effort Joe Cicala put into authenticity, destroyed in one evening!!!" Schroeder will also add a special pizza to the menu for the night. The takeover starts at 5 p.m. [EaterWire]

CENTER CITY — Ruth's Chris steakhouse may be relocating to the former Elephant & Castle space at 18th and Market streets, according to a report from Michael Klein, though the deal has not yet been finalized. Elephant & Castle closed just over a year ago after an almost 20-year run; Ruth's Chris has inhabited its current home for 27 years. [Philly.com]

DELIVERY WIRE — Burgers go for half-off every Monday at Taproom on 19th, but tonight, March 30, you can even get the discounted burgers delivered right to your door. That means they'll start at $6.50 for the signature LaFrieda burger or $6 for the veggie burger (made with chickpeas and black quinoa) if you order tonight via Caviar. (Caviar charges a flat delivery fee of $4.99, though that fee is waived for your first order.) [Caviar]
