Tip Jar: An Eater’s Guide to Philly!

Metro's Philadelphia Eater's Guide noted some of our favorite foodie destinations beyond cheesesteak purveyors... the often overlooked Philly is full of exciting new restaurant concepts and incredible chefs and dishes that don't often get the recognition that they deserve. So this week's tip? Eat up! Here's a few more places to check out next time you're in town:

In Northern Liberties and Point Breeze:

Circles is the beloved thai BYO that opened a location in Northern Liberties earlier this year, bringing the spice to another hot neighborhood. Try the seitan satay and the best pad thai in the city, then take a stroll over to the Piazza or Liberties Walk to cool off.

In Rittenhouse Square:

Vernick Food & Drink is worth checking out for their delicious "toast" creations, such as the fromage blanc and pickled cherries or the charred spinach and leeks. This bistro knocks out some beautiful dishes and craft cocktails, all with a great view of Walnut Street. Head to Rittenhouse Square or to the Franklin for an after-dinner cocktail.

In Fishtown:

Both Frankford Hall and Loco Pez rank high on our list for excellent scene-watching in the eclectic Fishtown neighborhood. And the food and drink are swell, too! The former is a funky beer garden with enormous pretzels and even bigger beers to work those biceps. The latter pumps out super cheap tacos and margs for a lively crowd. We recommend visiting earlier or on a weekday to get a seat, as wait times can be long on weekends.  Then experience the 14 Reasons to Live in Fishtown.

So welcome! We hope you can squeeze in a visit to one of these essential Philly eateries on your visit.


OCF Cafe Grand Opening in Point Breeze

New to Point Breeze, or curious about the neighborhood? Head on over to the grand opening of the newest OCF Coffee House (there's one at 1745 South Street, as well) from OCF Realty, tomorrow, August 16th. This neighborhood just gets better each month, and now there's excellent coffee to be had, too. 


3 Bedrooms and Sardine Sandwiches in Graduate Hospital

1506 S 24th Street is a stunning 3 Bedroom Home in Graduate Hospital with the works...including...sardine sandwiches?

That's right, this home is near the newly opened American Sardine Bar (the former Wander Inn) where you can expect a playful inventive menu and great beer just a few blocks away.

But back to the goods. This home has hardwood floors on the 1st floor, an open floor plan with large living and dining rooms, a kitchen with glass back splash, stainless appliances, polished granite counter tops, new cabinetry, and access to the rear yard. The yard is a beautiful addition to this home with fencing and brick paver patio with professional landscaping. The 2nd floor has all new neutral color carpeting, a new 3 piece bathroom with storage vanity and spacious rooms. Central air, in move-in condition and a fantastic opportunity!

Check it out...and then book your tour with the Somers Team! And end it with a bite and a nip at American Sardine Bar.
