THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED 707 Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: Peek into 707, Ryan Margolis’ smart bistro on Chestnut Street, and you might think that a budget evening is not in the cards. The place is sleek and airy, with a palette of warm vanilla, rich chocolate and hints of gold. But check this out: the menu, and even the wine list, is downright affordable. Chef Dan Soley has fun with comfort food, serving bites such as Reuben spring rolls and a cast-iron skillet of eggs, bacon, cheddar and potatoes that is a muscular meal any time of day. Everything is $20 or less, including a terrific steak salad with aged Parm and crispy onions. A trio of hot dogs is Soley’s sly take on the slider phenom; these dogs are made special for 707 by a butcher in northeast Philly. A topnotch beverage program includes 13 wines by the glass, another 13 beers on tap and fun cocktails such as the signature Cherry Bomb made with Bacardi melon. Oh, don’t miss the funnel cake for dessert, better than any you’ve had at the fair.
