Soft-openings in University City

Noodle bar at Sang Kee.

Two University City newcomers are soft-opening.

Tom Drinker's West, the pizzeria-pub in the old O'Hara's at 39th and Chestnut Streets, opened over the weekend and is running regular hours of 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays through Fridays, and noon to 2 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Here's the menu.

And the UCity branch of Sang Kee Noodle House opens at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday (11/24) at the Sheraton at 36th and Chestnut Streets. Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. It's about 90 percent there, says owner Michael Chow, as the grand opening will be in December. The menu combines the noodle dishes from Chinatown with the sautee dishes of Wynnewood.

Here's a recap of University City projects.
