We’ve been hibernating this winter but one of the major reasons we leave our couch/fireplace/House of Cards setup is the Nova Salmon at FARMicia. We’ve had their incredible house-made Lox every which way. Throw four Lox Dishes in with half price brunch cocktails and you’ve got your very own LOXAPALOOZA (because…it’s delicious and why the hell not).Cue the food pics!
Cheese-lovers/cheddarhounds/turophiles/stilton-freaks/caseophiles of all kinds filed into High Street On Market for a special $25, four course cheese-centric meal of wonder. Centered around Birchrun Hills Farm cheeses, each dish was cheesier and more smile-inducing than the next. Bring on the cheese.Cue the food pics!
Ahhh, this place. With Italian food that your Nonna/Nunny would approve of, white tablecloths and 40 years of family vibes, The Saloon is our new favorite spot. Old Fashioneds, green carpets, and Scope in the ladies room…this place has character. It also has the best marinara/gravy/red sauce/whatever you call it we’ve ever had.Cue the food pics!
If you are going to brave the restaurant week crowds, here’s our top 5 picks for spots where you’ll definitely get more than your money’s worth (we even did the math).
There are tons of places to choose from, but we narrowed it down to a few delicious spots that offer a $ saving restaurant week menu. Basically, places we love but can’t actually afford.
Ah, 12 Steps Down. One of the finer divey establishments Philly has to offer…where $2 Mimosas and Bloodys flow like wine and day drinking is highly encouraged. Plus, they have the latest and greatest craft beers, friendly vibes, and free wifi to boot.Cue the food pics!
First things first, a confession. We’ve been doing Vietnamese food all wrong… in that, we haven’t been doing it at all. Then we sat down with our friend Roland. Shoutout to our 11th and Washinton tour guide for some great recs, for showing us how to eat pho his way, and for letting us quote him. Let’s start with Philly’s Vietnamese scene in 3 words or less… it’s “better than NYC.”Cue the food pics!
