This new spot from Chef Sam Jacobson is bringing things like meat pies, mash and eels to the restaurant scene on East Passyunk Avenue.
The main attraction of Stargazy is their meat pies. There are traditional options, vegetarian options and occasionally specials. On this particular day, the braised oxtail cheesesteak was on special.
In addition to the savory meat pies, there are also sweet options. On this day, fig tarts were among the desert options.
If you’re stopping in here to eat, you can also help yourself to a free cup of tea. Because the tea is free, Jacobson has decided to set up a donation jar near the tea and each month the money in it will be donated to a different charity. This month, the money is being raised for Alzheimer’s Awareness.
The front counter includes a mural from Isaiah Zagar.
If you’re planning on stopping by Stargazy, the earlier in the day is probably better. Even though the business has set hours, they are only open until they sell out–which has been pretty quick on some days.
