Not since Philadelphia's Great Steakhouse Rush of 2008-2009 has Center City seen the luxe grandeur of Ocean Prime, which opened this week at 15th and Sansom Streets (124 S. 15th St., 215-563-0163), a $5 million build-out of the former Roy's. This is the 10th Ocean Prime for restaurateur Cameron Mitchell, who owns about 20 restaurants nationwide. Entrees start at $27 for chicken and top at $47 for twin lobster tails. Opens 4 p.m. daily.
Siggie is back
Old-timers may remember Helen Sigel Wilson, one of the city's most decorated amateur golfers of the 1940s and 1950s, who made her living with the restaurants Helen Sigel Wilson's in Center City and L'Auberge in Wayne. In 1997, she got back into the game with Siggie's L'Auberge in West Conshohocken with her son, George "Siggie" Wilson. Siggie's L'Auberge closed after Helen Wilson's death in 2001.
