Momentum Digital is back with another episode of Small Business Saturday, where we highlight a deserving company in the greater Philadelphia area. This Saturday we sat down with Luca Sena, Jr, the Head Chef at Revolution House which is located on the corner of 2nd and Market St. in Old City.
When Luca Sena, Sr. and his co-founder John Poulos first laid eyes on what was formally known as Snow White Diner, they knew the location was perfect for a eclectic and unique restaurant, where they could blend their traditional Italian cuisine with American classics. With the name Revolution House, not only are they paying homage to Philadelphia’s prominent role in the American Revolution, but also spinning it to depict the type of “revolutionary” menu items.
The building that now houses the restaurant/bar was constructed in 1798 as the Quaker Friends Meetinghouse. So when they acquired the help of famed photographer Dominic Episcopo, their mission was to maintain the same sort of historic feel and ambiance. They have certainly achieved that aesthetic, from the inlaid vintage skeleton keys, reclaimed Lancaster pine which forms a beautiful American flag, and a massive chandelier with an America Eagle as the center feature.
The interior design is elegant and intriguing, however, Chef Sena, Jr’s food is absolutely the star of the show. The focal point of the entire restaurant has to be the large wood oven which dominates the entry way. All customers are immediately greeted by this behemoth, which was constructed by a world-renown Italian masonry expert. Fifteen years later, Chef Sena is pumping out everything from flatbreads to cheesesteak rolls in this wood fired piece of art.
