2017 New Italian Restaurant

Res Ipsa

Three Fishtown operators—Mark Corpus and Mark Capriotti from ReAnimator Coffee and Tyler Akin of Stock—decided to open an all-day cafe in Center City, because that’s what you do in 2017. And while its daytime thing is all well and good, what really matters is what happens after dark, when it morphs into one of the most innovative and honest Italian BYOs in the city. Don’t miss the pasta specials and charred octopus.
