Happy Monday everyone. Before the week starts I wanted to share the 2nd group of photos from Philadelphia. I love the colors I was able to capture around sunset. I had such a nice time there but the truth is I know nothing about Philly. I decided I’ll take myself back soon, but does anyone have favorite restaurants or stores there you can share with me below? Would appreciate it!



  • Jade Barnes

    Zavino is one of my favorite date night spots. The pizza and whipped ricotta appetizer are the best in Philadelphia.

  • Diana

    Vedge and Zahav are fab restaurants! The Continental Midtown is also fun. Rooftop dining.

  • Nina Dombalagian

    I could go on forever about Philly restaurants but definitely try Sampan, Barbuzzo, Honey’s Sit and Eat (for the best brunch EVER), and for a fun bar scene Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co (yes, that’s the bars name). The possibilities are endless!

  • Brittany kalsky

    You have to try barbuzzo it’s amazing. Also try twenty manning grill, its a cute and cozy little place. Good dog is a great beer bar and cool spot to hang out.

    For boutique shopping, Joan Shepp, seriously Joan Shepp. And Knit Wit. Anthropologie on 18th and Walnut is just beautiful, this location is a former mansion. Sabrina’s for breakfast or brunch. For fun, try the Mutter Museum. And for art, the Barnes Foundation and Phila. Museum of Art. Also the city is great for photographers, with historical architecture, historical rowhomes and the country’s largest number of public/sreet murals and inspiring street fashion.

  • Adrienne Solomon

    Absolutely loved Zavino!! I went on my anniversary in November and it was so good! Really cute atmosphere and great pizza and wine! Can’t wait to go back!

    I ate at that little cafe! On the square I believe. Is it called Parc? I had shellfish and a salad at the bar and it was really good. Glad you liked Philly – I loved my visit there too and would love to go back again.

    I lived in the Old City section of Philadelphia for a year and loved exploring all of the amazing restaurants, bars & shops. Here are some of my favorite spots in our old ‘hood as well as throughout the rest of the city:

    Amada (favorite Jose Garces spot – great for dinner or brunch)
    Race Street Cafe (craft beer & pub bites)
    Franklin Fountain (old fashion ice cream)
    Pizzeria Stella (thin crust pizza)
    Talulah’s Garden (beautiful brunch)
    Kanella (Greek – best for brunch)
    Reading Terminal Market (eat your way through…)
    El Vez (super fun spot for Mexican & margs)
    Parc (looks like you may have stopped there, but definitely an absolute favorite)
    Standard Tap (great gastropub)
    McGillin’s (historic and lively ale house)
    XIX (Nineteen) Bar (upscale, hidden gem with amazing views of the city)
    The Piazza (open air plaza with lots of shops & restaurants)
    Anthropologie (the store itself is a feast for the eyes)
    Vagabond (fun boutique)

    Enjoy your next visit!

    Oh there are so many places to recommend, so I’m compiling a list of places that are both delicious and adorable:

    -Shane chocolates & Franklin Fountain for your sweet tooth and the most perfect vintage setting

    -High St On Market for amazing bread, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Voted as best new restaurant in Bon appetit. I love their best cured salmon sandwich.

    -Around the corner from High St, Menagerie Cafe. Delicious sips, and you might love the gold font on the glass window and mint green espresso cups

    – abar or akitchen (near rittenhouse square) for great cocktails and delicious food

    -Random tea room in northern liberties makes the best chai tea latte fresh everyday with ground spices, vanilla, etc.

    -Talulas Daily cafe for morning or afternoon caffeine boost and snack

    And then a laundry list of restaurants: fond, nord, zahav, le virtu, vetri, amis, Aldine, laurel, fork, will, kanella, etc, etc
