For the holidays, sometimes the greatest gift is one you give yourself—not cooking at home for all those guests. Here are seven Philly restaurants well equipped for handling large parties of revelers suddenly arriving on the doorstep.
When Pub & Kitchen held their first Country Delight night six years ago, I suggested bringing your own earplugs. Now I’m married to a country music fan and I admit, sometimes I tap along to the twangy tunes. I’m not happy about it (the tapping along to country music part, not the married part, being married is great), but it’s true.
Tonight, Tuesday, November 24th, P&K will be throwing another country night with cheap beer, cheap whiskey and an impressive menu from chef Eli Collins. Collins will be frying up chicken and trout, smoking pork shoulder and ribs, and also whipping up mac and cheese, peel-and-eat shrimp and much more.
Grab three friends and order the “I’m Higher than Willie Nelson” Platter. The $91 feast comes with a dozen oysters, fried chicken, brisket, pork ribs, collard greens, coleslaw, classy biscuit, burnt ends beans and whiskey on the side.
Philly’s best bars don’t just know how to shake a fine cocktail. here are six classic bar foods for modern tastes.
For seven years now we’ve polled bartenders, beer reps, booze writers and professional drinkers of all stripes, and asked them to pick their most-loved bars in the area. We then add our own favorites, do a little cocktail-napkin math and come up with the 50 Best Bars in Philadelphia. This year the Best Bars list includes dives, gastropubs, cocktail lounges and even an awesome little spot in Port Richmond.
This year’s list features a new number one bar, but that’s far from the only interesting tidbit on the list.
Pub & Kitchen is offering a special “Industry Relief Party” this evening, Monday, September 28th for hospitality folk who need a break after a weekend of getting cut early or staring out into empty restaurants.
Starting at 9 p.m., the popular bar will be offering house cocktails for $6 plus “Cheap Beer / Cheap Whiskey / Good Times.”
Chef Eli Collins will also have some food specials.
Hey, did you guys know that its National Sandwich Month? Well it is, and we’re celebrating by bringing you the best sandwich news we can find.
Yesterday, it was an up-close-and-personal look at the Gizmo from Paesano’s. Today, it’s the new Local Deals promotion from Caviar that’s going on right now. In keeping with our theme, we thought we’d do a round-up of all the best sandwiches you could have delivered to you until Friday with no delivery charge.
So get out your stretchy pants, folks. It’s going to be that kind of week.
Whether you’ve tired of Center City Sips, your go-to bar, or simply drinking at home, here’s a round-up of the newer additions to the list of Philadelphia’s happy hours this summer. With the heat of August on the horizon, we’re probably all going to need a drink (or three), so let these newcomers reinvigorate your weekday drinking.
We’ll accept a cocktail as thanks.
Asparagus, that harbinger of spring, now marks the beginning of summer as its harvest ends. Here are a few spots where you can bid adieu to asparagus before it’s all gone.
