Mangia Macaroni

Spring Garden • Cuisine: Italian

While everyone else is waiting in line to get into Marc Vetri’s tiny new pasta bar, Alex recommends skipping the wait and going to Mangia Macaroni for their housemade agnolotti in brown butter.

Townsend Wine Bar
Neighborhood: East Passyunk • Cuisine: French

For your requisite weekend beverage, try hitting Tod Wentz’s newly reopened wine bar, where they’re serving interesting French wine from taps, by the glass or by the bottle.  To ensure getting a seat at the bar, arrive early — they open at 4:30 p.m.

Taqueria La Prima
Neighborhood: Italian Market • Cuisine: Mexican

After a long evening of drinking, Jason recommends hitting up Taqueria La Prima for al pastor tacos with green onions because you deserve great tacos, not just-okay ones. They’re open til 3 a.m., which is another mark in their favor.

Cake Life Bake Shop
Neighborhood
: My Living Room • Cuisine: Dessert

As we mentioned in our guide to an actually fun and delicious Valentine’s Day, Cake Life Bake Shop delivers many of their desserts through Caviar, and I can’t really think of a better way to spend an evening than staying home, and enjoying a slice of pistachio rose cake.

Comfort and Floyd

We happen to have Monday off this weekend, so I’m headed to Comfort and Floyd for late-morning pancakes on Monday, as recommended in our list of chefs’ recommendations for where to eat on a weekday off.
