Opening day through the end of March, which is Women's History Month, Aether will donate a portion of proceeds to Women Against Abuse. The nonprofit agency is Philadelphia's leading domestic violence organization.
The restaurant will serve a selection of seafood dishes, including lobster rolls, shrimp po’ boys and whole branzino, as well as handmade pasta and signature plates like the dry-aged burger with bacon jam. The raw bar will feature a rotating selection of oysters, live scallops, razor clams and more.
"We will have $2 Little Neck clams and $3 oysters year-round, seafood towers starting as low as $60, $11 small plates and $16 pastas," explained Fia Berisha, co-owner of Aether.
