THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Philadelphia Fevre Restaurant Review: You'll smell the namesake steak on the griddle before you enter the Madison Street storefront. This cozy café features swivel chairs and a bright blue counter where you can watch sliced beef sizzle, onions simmer and cheese melt. Opened in 1983 by Philadelphian Renée LeFevre, it was bought by Edwina Martin-Arnold and John Arnold in 1999. Staying true to LeFevre’s original plan, the couple still upholds the Philly steak sandwich tradition. Add-ons range from mushrooms to teriyaki sauce and cherry peppers. Hoagies arrive in the same crusty bun packed with your choice of fillings --- from cold cuts to tuna salad. Crisp crinkle-cut fries are a favorite match for either sandwich. Beverage choices run between sodas and reputable national beers.
