Philadelphia – 12/27/17 – Abe Fisher

Yet another fantastic spot in Philly and another place I’ve been wanting to try for a while.  The pickled mackerel dip was fabulous even though not what I was expecting with lettuce cups.  The sweet potato was perhaps the favorite, although the chicken was pretty great as well.  So glad I wasn’t dissuaded from this visit.

Philadelphia – 12/26/17 – Vernick Food & Drink

I had been wanting to come here for so long and it certainly did not disappoint.  If I lived in Rittenhouse I would probably be here once a week and hope for a seat at the bar with my name on it.
