The menu at Boxers PHL does a body good, apparently.
It took a few months, but Gayborhood sports bar Boxers PHL finally fired up that brick oven on its second floor and is cranking out the delicious grub it’s been promising since it opened in October.
So here’s the deal, for those of you who haven’t ventured in for a bite yet: The kitchen is open 7 days a week: on weekdays from 4 pm to 10 pm (sorry lunch-goers) and weekends from noon to 10 pm.

The "Orgy" is topped with sausage, pepperoni, red onions, mushrooms, tomato and extra-virgin olive oil.

It seems like we’ve been waiting around forever for Tria to open up in Fitler Square. But now, it seems like everything is finally coming together.
The new location is set to open in early April at the old Dmitri’s location at 2227 Pine Street.
Executive chef Karen Nicolas now leads the kitchen with a larger, more dinner-focused menu, featuring seafood and pasta dishes. But don’t fret. Management promises you’ll still be able to find some of their most popular small plates and sandwiches.
Along with a larger menu, Tria Fitler Square will also have 30 outdoor seats (open as soon as things warm up a little outside). Meanwhile, the inside of the restaurant will be a bit different than you might remember from Dmitri's, with additional windows for views of the park.
