Morgan’s Pier

Website & Menu Design

Nothing says “summer” like a visit to Morgan’s Pier, Philadelphia’s backyard beer garden. Beautifully situated adjacent to the Ben Franklin Bridge, this summertime hot spot not only offers a large array of delicious libations, but also great food! Each year Morgan’s Pier recruits one of Philly’s finest chefs to create a dream menu – this year’s chef-of-choice is Top Chef winner Nicholas Elmi, and his menu is nothing short of awesome.

I was given the opportunity to not only design that menu, but design 3 of them – one for dinner, one for drinks and one for brunch – Philly’s favorite weekend pastime. I wanted it to represent that “backyard barbeque meets New England seafood shack. And while we are at it, let’s redesign the website too. The owners of Morgan’s Pier wanted a site that would be easy to update – whether it was menu changes or upcoming events, the site needed a simple backend with no code necessary. Since another of their restaurants was running on the Squarespace platform, we decided that would be the ideal direction to take. We custom coded some features, including a countdown to opening day, weather widget and a private party inquiry form.
