Since Serpico landed at #9 on Philly’s 2018’s Top 50 restaurants, I thought it was time to revisit after a couple of years. Rating justified! It is a gem, sitting on a nondescript block of South St. Eating at the open kitchen counter, with the eponymous chef right in front of us, we could watch the seamless orchestration in an immaculate kitchen- a testament to quality control The food was superb. Highlights were the ceviche and venison. Interesting cocktail list, knowledgeable, friendly server and a cool room, even if you choose not to sit at counter. Peter Serpico is still there cooking and serving, keeping the standards high. He is not a conversationalist, but don’t hold it against him. Just let him cook! More

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

I enjoyed returning to Caribou Cafe after many (many) years. Their Restaurant Week menu was a fresh departure from other places who put rather ho-hum choices out there. My 3 courses were: escargot (done in a delightful sauce with pastry squares), pork loin (stuffed with lovely sauce over mashed potatoes), and profiteroles (two sizable filled pastries - difficult to eat with a fork without destroying them tho). Very attentive and friendly server (tho he didn't offer much information other than all the choices were good) and regular visits from the busser to take away dishes. Well worth the $35/pp. TWO NOTES: only one other party with us upstairs and they left soon afterwards, so was a bit odd atmosphere. Wine was nice but at $10-$12/glass, our bar bill was as much as the meal - not sure buying by the bottle would have been less expensive either. Just plan on spending much more than you expected if you and/or your party are serious drinkers. ENJOY! 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.
