After a week of overcast conditions it looks as if the weather is finally cooperating with Chris Scarduzio and the crew at Center City’s Table 31. They launched their seasonal Plaza Cafe at the Comcast Center yesterday, but with the clouds lifted this afternoon, today seems like a better time to soak up the great outdoors there. Scarduzio’s new menu features Tuscan hummus bruschetta with olives, tomatoes, estate bottled olive oil, and rosemary flatbread; muffuletta panino with spicy cappicola ham, sweet sopressata, mortadella, young provolone, and olive bruschetta on focaccia; and a chilled shellfish salad with poached shrimp, scallops, crab, and scungili, shaved fennel, and cherry tomatoes in a lemon thyme vinaigrette. Weather permitting, the plaza is open now and serving until 11 p.m. tonight.
