East Passyunk has become quite the restaurant destination with the likes of Fond, Salt & Pepper and Le Virtù, but for decent prepared foods, the options have been slim (a teensy selection at Green Aisle Grocery and the questionable offerings at Acme). Enter Plenty, a gourmet-to-go from culinary instructor and ex-Philadelphia Weekly scribe Tim McGinnis and lawyer Jesse Spalletta, who are putting out luscious sandwiches like the hickory house-smoked brisket with cheddar; grab-and-go dinner entrées like coq au vin with mashed potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts; and — this is still South Philly — totally legit homemade meatballs and a daily assortment of pastas. Should you not want to go too far with your grab-and-go, there’s a large communal table for in-store dining.
