Plaza Café At Table 31 Is Back, Complete With To-Go Menu; Meanwhile Table 31 Drops The 'Steakhouse' Tag

"Yes, very good. I'll have a Bloody Mary and a steak sandwich and… a steak sandwich."

JFK Boulevard will once again become attractive when the Table 31 Plaza Café at the Comcast Center reopens for the season on Wednesday, April 1.

New this year: a take-out menu offering the Plaza Café’s selection of salads, sandwiches and pizzas.

Missing, however, from the Plaza Cafe menu: the roast pork sandwich on the regular T31 lunch menu that Scarduzio prepares for Rick Nichols here.

Green feature: the to-go menu is served in packaging made from recycled materials and presented in reusable paper bags.

Meanwhile, Rich Nichols drops the news that Table 31 is reconceptualizing from a steakhouse angle to an Italian focus instead. On account of the Center City steakhouse market recently being over-saturated.
