New eateries


Two new restaurants on and near campus are now open for business. The first, Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House at 3432 Sansom St., takes the place of the restaurant La Terrasse, and features a menu of mostly fresh seafood, from shrimp and scallops to swordfish and—as the name suggests—oysters. The second, Harvest Seasonal Grill and Wine Bar, replaces The Marathon Grill and MarBar next to the movie theater at 40th and Walnut streets. Harvest uses fresh, seasonal, and organic foods from local farms, which means the menu will change according to what ingredients are currently in season.
