The space of the recently closed Umami Burger at the newly rebranded Sahara is going to become a location of Chicken & Pete’s which is one of Philadelphia’s oldest sports bars. The sports bar is highly rated with a dozen locations around Philadelphia as well as locations in other states. The chain is known for its crab, lobster pizza, mussels and crab french fries which do sound amazing.
No date yet on when it will open but expect Chicken & Pete’s at the Sahara Hotel & Casino to open in time for the 2020 football season. Umami Burger was good, but burgers with exotic ingredients aren’t for everyone the new restaurant might have wider appear.
