Can’t beat the $5.00 HappyHour menu. The portions are generous enough for sharing and the food is good. Two of us shared the fish tacos, veggie quesadilla and pork nachos. Everywas well seasoned and tasty. The only caveat is the noise level. Energetic is a kind word. During happy hour it’s flat out noisy. Go towards the end of happy hour for less noise (not quiet though). Regular menu pricing is good too if happy hour isn’t your thing. More

Discover Center City

The whole world should knows that there’s more to the diverse dining scene of Center City than cheesesteaks and hoagies. Israeli, Mexican, Japanese and a melting pot of other cuisines are dished up daily in the shadow of the Liberty Bell. French bistros are becoming as commonplace as Italian delis. If you haven’t tried black truffle pizza, what’s stopping you? Whether it’s a cocoa-cured rack of lamb or a vegan wood-roasted carrot that you’re craving, Center City likely has it. Fine dining establishments and casual rooftop bars co-exist in perfect harmony, and top chefs collaborate rather than compete. By the way, the iconic cheesesteaks and hoagies aren't bad either.
