OLD CITY PHILADELPHIA

Here are some of our favorite places you should try if you have not yet in Old City…

AMADA

Amada, located in the heart of Old City, serves authentic Spanish tapas based on the earthy Mediterranean flavors that have long been the passion and expertise of founder and executive chef, Jose Garces. Garces is among the country’s most distinguished chefs and appeared on Food Network’s Iron Chef America and was the winner of “The Next Iron Chef.” Amada was the first restaurant he opened in 2005 and continues to be one of the most demanded reservations in Philly!

Triumph Brewing Company

This brewery (first location was opened in Princeton and dubbed the largest and “grandest” brewpub in the state of New Jersey), features regional American cuisine & hand-crafted freshly brewed beer. This is a great place to go for happy hour with friends and colleagues! Beer tastings & tours can be combined with any of our menus. They also have another Pennsylvania located in New Hope. Both locations offer a great menu and live music.

City Tavern

The City Tavern is a replica of an historic 18th century building located at the intersection of Second and Walnut Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Called the “most genteel tavern in America” by Dudley Gifford, it was the favorite meeting place of many of the Founding Fathers and of many members of the First Continental Congress. Today, this is a great place to go if you’re visiting the historical parts of the city. The food and drinks are delicious (and they even still use the founding father’s original recipes!), the interior has a great charm to it, and the wait staff dresses in character. The establishment was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s “The Layover: 36 Hours in Philly.”

Franklin Fountain

The Franklin Fountain, which opened the summer of 2004, is set up like an old-fashioned ice cream shop. Although the shop itself is on the smaller size, their ice cream concoctions certainly aren’t! They offer any type of sundae imaginable and they’re large enough to feed an entire family! Let’s not forget to mention Travel Channel’s Adam Richman melted with ice cream goodness when taking on their Mt. Vesuvius sundae on “Man vs. Food.”
