The Juneteenth Picnic and Farm Tour was an unforgettable time. I hope that Honeysuckle shares this important day with folks for years to come.

About the restaurant
Hi! Scampi will be touring Southern Italy this summer at Wim Cafe at 226 South Street. We will explore with a 5 Course Tasting menu highlighting the food Liz fell in love with. While at the space, there will be a lovely selection of PA wine, beer and spirits to enjoy. These menus only run for one month, so come enjoy and learn some edible history of Italy.

About the restaurant
We are ecstatic to open a state of the art open kitchen, serving the two dishes we recklessly love and cannot live without...noodles and sushi! Our goal is to focus heavily on freshness and quality, as we make craft noodles and sushi for our guests. That also means we will be making everything from scratch, in-house. This includes soups, tare (sauces), toppings, and last but not least, fresh crafted noodles. We hope to see you soon as we serve you our favorite foods. Please follow us @ShisoNoodleSushi for updates.

Although we made a reservation through Open Table, no one verified it! We were marked as Walk In. There weren’t enough servers and so service was slow. The food was delicious, though a bit pricey. The Sake Sour was very good. We will likely go back, perhaps we will have Sushi this time. Open kitchen is great idea, but we took a booth due to various reasons.

About the restaurant
Entering the Saloon, a family owned restaurant since it opened in 1967 is a bit like stepping into Philadelphia's past. Dark oak paneling, shiny brass and authentic local antiques create a warm congenial and casual atmosphere. The choice of two comfortable dining rooms each with its own vintage bars make dining and conversation a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Both bars feature a delicious and moderately priced food menu. The menu is Italian with seafood specials such as grilled octopus and dover sole. Saloon steaks and veal chops are legendary. Many prefer a plate of fried long hot peppers to compliment the steaks. All desserts and gelatos are made on the premises daily. The Saloon is a Philadelphia neighborhood bar and restaurant with a national reputation. And the parking is FREE!

About the restaurant
Behind the wrought iron gate, past the herbaceous patio and through the atrium is Talula's Garden, the warm and elegant Washington Square eatery from Aimee Olexy and Starr Restaurants. The modern menu, prepared with carefully-sourced ingredients and a light European touch, changes with the seasons. The artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Tria, Philly's original casual wine bar since 2004.

Our two Center City wine bars have helped elevate Philly’s wine scene while keeping it fun. Tria’s seasonally curated wine, cheese and beer menus showcase super-cool smaller producers who are driven by passion. The friendly Tria team will help you discover new flavor sensations if that’s your jawn. If you prefer, we’ll bring you more wine and leave you alone. It’s all good.

We love wine and it shows, but Tria above all is a community where guests come to relax and connect. There are no TVs or other distractions. The “concept” is for our guests to engage in conversation made livelier, deeper and cheerier by the wine. Cheers!

About the restaurant
At Philadelphia Distilling, our distilling team combines craftsmanship, science and skill to create a unique portfolio of premium spirits that rely on the agricultural integrity of authentically sourced grains and botanicals and the finest heritage equipment.

Hand-hammered copper pot stills from the fifth-generation Forsyth family and wooden fermentation vessels from Hall-Woodford, an iconic Philadelphia-based family business, are key points of difference for us—both in their construction value as well as the integrity of the spirits they help us to produce. We continue our batch-by-batch process, creating spirits that celebrate big, bold flavor.
