We love a good twist on the traditional. And, that’s exactly what this property provides; something that’s just a little bit out of the ordinary. What’s this mystery touch, you ask? Hardwood planks spanning the width of the main wall on the open lower level. The wall adds unique dimension and personality to the otherwise modern, neutral and clean space.

Hardwood floors (not the ones on the wall!), recessed lighting and ceiling fans are found throughout the home. Read more »

It’s loaded with spaces and amenities you usually have to spend a good bit more than this to find, and one of those amenities you probably won’t find anywhere else you look, no matter how much you spend. Read more »

Cheu Fishtown Will Open This Friday

Clockwise from top: beef and kimchi bing, wasabi rice cakes, brisket ramen

When Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh’s opened their ramen shop, Cheu Noodle Bar, there wasn’t a doubt in the world — at least by us (for Puchowitz and Darragh, it was a different story) — that the concept would be a great success. And now, four years in, Cheu Noodle Bar feels classic, like it’s been here for decades, because those guys know how to make a restaurant fit in in Philly. They did it in Washington Square West, and then again with Bing Bing Dim Sum on Passyunk Avenue.

And by the end of this week (Friday, July 21st), they’ll go for three with the opening of Cheu Fishtown at 1416 Frankford Avenue.
