Adding the words “all you can drink” to a University City restaurant menu is a bold move, but CoZara is, if nothing else, a bold endeavor for chef Hiroyuki “Zama” Tanaka, who opened what was essentially the city’s first modern izakaya between two college campuses.
But yes, “all you can drink” are words that exist on CoZara’s menu now, and the deal is actually pretty solid.
Maybe you’ve got the most incredible buffalo chicken dip recipe known to man, or maybe you enjoy grilling in the cold. Maybe you’re just some sort of crazed masochist who actually enjoys holing up in a kitchen while your friends and family have all of the fun without you. Sane people? They like to relax on Sundays — especially Super Bowl Sundays — and you can too if you let a bunch of these Philly pros do the work for you.
Seriously, I know that people like drinking outside and that, for years, we had to fight just to see one or two beer gardens open for the summer. But now it seems like these things are opening/popping up/changing location every weekend, and pretty soon we’re going to get to the point where there’s one on every block.
Not saying this is a bad thing, just… Man, how things have changed.
Anyway, there are two new beer gardens for you to explore this weekend. And the first one also comes with sushi.
