The Rooster – a diner-style, Jewish deli on Sansom Street in Center City known for its sandwiches and pies – is making Thanksgiving dinner a little easier again this year, particularly for those with limited culinary talents.
The restaurant, which donates 100 percent of its profits to the Broad Street Ministry, has been selling to-go pies for a few years, and it is bringing back the tradition this holiday season with pumpkin and Dutch apple pies.
The Rooster, formerly Rooster Soup Co., got a new menu and direction in July when owners Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook changed it from an American-style diner to a Jewish deli, complete with smoked whitefish and corned beef.
The rotating selection of pies has always has been a highlight of my visits (especially their former, to-die-for, banana cream), and The Rooster stays true to that with its own selection of fruit pies.
