A Philly eatery was put under the spotlight recently, though not for the reasons you might be thinking. Instead of its delectables earning it accolades, it was its interior design: Mt. Airy’s Goat Hollow was dubbed HGTV‘s favorite in the “Posh Public Spaces” contest.
Goat Hollow, which re-opened in 2013 at the same spot it occupied nearly a decade ago, was originally a 1920s house before being converted into a restaurant.
