THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Union Trust Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: In a city stampeded with steakhouses, the Union Trust is something special. The sizzle starts with Prime beef and humanely raised heritage veal from Allen Brothers in Chicago. And since it touts top-of-the-catch seafood as much as steak, Union Trust partnered with the rough and tumble gang from Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch to deliver Alaskan king crab legs straight from the Bering Sea, along with the contents for a pristine raw bar that boasts one of the fastest shuckers in the world, chef Gordon Weldon. (Start out with a shellfish tower priced for two or more.) Add to that the restaurant’s architecturally fine bones---an historic building dating to 1888 and updated in 1923, 65-foot-high ceilings, seating for 300 à la carte and 100 for private dining, and an 18,000-bottle wine cellar---and this bank-turned-jewelry store-turned-restaurant becomes a player when it comes to steakhouse dining in Philadelphia.
