Best of Philly

2018 Lunch Counter

Rooster Soup Co.

Pop into CookNSolo’s modern luncheonette because the tuna melt and smoked matzo ball soup are endlessly satisfying. Pop in because Rooster’s new chef, George Sabatino, is doing really cool things with local meats and produce. And definitely pop in because 100 percent of the restaurant’s profits go to Broad Street Ministry’s Hospitality Collaborative, an organization that feeds Philly’s hungry and food-insecure.

Editor’s note: Rooster Soup Co. has undergone major changes since we announced this award. George Sabatino is no longer the chef, the concept is Jewish deli–style luncheonette, and the restaurant is called simply The Rooster.
