Although the blog is focused on Bucks County, I do get to Philadelphia once or twice a month.  When I am there I like to try out different restaurants.  My Facebook Friend and Search Advertising buddy Emily helped create a target list for me. Here is her recommendations but feel free to make other suggestions in the Reply Box on on the Comment link.

  1. Mercato, BYOB, contemporary American-Italian; 12th and Spruce
  2. Amada, Spanish tapas; 2nd and Chestnut
  3. Tria, wine and cheese bar (with other food too); 12th and Spruce
  4. Estia; Mediterranean; 15thand Locust (if you go, you MUST get the Estia chips)
  5. Standard Tap; pub fare; 2nd and Poplar
  6. Butcher and Singer; steakhouse; 15th and Walnut
  7. Supper; contemporary American; 9thand South
  8. Chifa; Peruvian-Cantonese (tastes like Thai); 7th and Chestnut
  9. Osteria; contemporary Italian; North Broad St.

Ironically today Philadelphia magazine announced their Top 50 Restaurants in the latest issue.  Here a link to that list.

Thanks to Kara for Pod. Roxanne for The Palm. Polina for Beau Monde. Jennifer for Morimoto & Cuba Libre. Greg for Shank’s and Evelyn’s.

      Thanks Steve, I have eaten at Buddakan, knew about Barclay Prime but Farmica was new to me. Thanks for commenting from the other coast. Hope all is well.

    Monk’s Belgian Cafe, 16th and Spruce by the Kimmel Center. Belgian Beer, famous for mussels and fries (pomme frites with bourbon mayonnaise for dipping), really great burgers too. I have to mention the prices are reasonable. Well worth the ride to Philly. Go to their website and salivate.

      I love mussels and Belgian Beer. Any suggestions on where to get them in Bucks Co.

        I wish I had a local place for you. I believe Belgian Beer can be found at the Mesquito Grille. As for the mussels, I can’t help you there. I guess you could settle for Chimay and wings at the Mesquito? Their wings are very good–ask for them well done if you like crispy. I know it’s not the same, not even close. You really do need to make the trip to Monk’s if mussels and Belgian Beer give you that happy, contented feeling.
