THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Bridget Foy's South Street Grill Restaurant Review

: The bistro atmosphere of dark green banquettes, surrounding mirrors and marble tables is relaxed and casual. Windows are large enough to bring the outside in if you don’t want to sit curbside to view the passing parade. Nearly everyone comes by this busy corner, including horse-drawn carriages carting tourists through historic Society Hill. Start with crispy fish tacos or smoked eggplant hummus, then move on to dishes such as steak frites with bordelaise sauce or prosciutto flatbread with caramelized onion. An array of salads, pastas and veggie burgers will please the vegetarians in the crowd. Desserts like the seasonal cheesecake or Cracker Jack sundae are always fine. Check out the fetching paintings in the dining room --- most are by Bernadette Foy, who opened the restaurant with her husband John back in the ’70s. Their daughter Bridget, for whom the place is named, now helps run the show.
