After escaping the confines of Eastern State Penitentary, we’d kill for strong beers and rich, comforting food. Here are a few places just a few steps from the old jailhouse.
The Belgian Café: Frites, mussels ,and rich Belgian comfort food sit along side a reasonably sized selection of craft beers. There’s plenty of vegan options, too. 2047 Green Street; 215-235-3500
London Grill: A solid beer list and a locally sourced menu make this neighborhood cornerstone a destination. 2301 Fairmount Avenue; 215-978-4545
L’oca: This refined Italian BYO is also a neighborhood favorite. 2025 Fairmount Avenue; 215-769-0316
