Good Beer/Eats in Philly
 
So I just started an internship in Philly at 20th and Market. I live in NJ, so I take the Patco in everyday. Wanted to see if anyone had good craft beer/interesting food places they really love.

I've fallen in love with Monks Cafe, so something along those lines would be sweet!

Steaks on South is a must!

There's a great Greek place on South Street that I always go to whenever I'm up. The name is escaping me right now, but the food is seriously fantastic, especially if Mediterranean food is your scene.

Philadelphia has some of the best food in the country. The paper/philly magazine/online always has good places to go. Check out El Vez for Mexican or Hot Diggity on South for Hot Dogs

Monks is what heaven must be like.


Check out Paesanos. Also La Locanda Del Ghiottone

Came in to say this. Fell in love with that place. I recommend it to everyone.

Yards Brewery is one of my favorite place... Get a T-shirt, play some shuffle board or whatever that shit they have there is... Great beer too.

Chickie's and Pete's is a good sports bar. Their crab fries are a staple of Philadelphia. Also, OP, best thing to do is go to the italian market and pick up some fresh prosciutto. bam.

I've always wanted to go to Philly to go to Mac's Tavern because i'm an avid It's Always Sunny fan, and i also want to get an amazing Philly Cheesesteak there. I fuckin' love philly cheesteaks.

You can just stroll down state street and probably find a bunch of great restaurants. You should check out some Weyerbacher beers. The brewery is in Easton, PA so it's not too far. I've enjoyed all the beers I've tried.

I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for but have you gone to Reading Terminal Market yet? They pretty much have absolutely everything when it comes to different types of food.

Definitely recommend Bridget Foy's at the beginning of south st. Dock Street cafe is fantastic, they brew their own beer, and make the best brick oven vegan pizza I have ever eaten, and I am not vegan. There's an awesome German restaurant on South as well.
