Philadelphia, PA - Most recently, East Passyunk Avenue snagged a spot on Food and Wine magazine’s list of the 10 Best Foodie Streets In America. Its no surprise to us, this street is becoming number one is our eyes.
East Passyunk keeps good company with the likes of other terrific thoroughfares like Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, West Randolph Street in Chicago and Valencia Street in San Francisco.
The article, written by acclaimed local food writer Joy Manning, spotlights five hot spots in the South Philadelphia neighborhood.
- East Passyunk’s Fond and its French-influenced fare starts off the list. The tasty flatbreads paired with ramp salad are highlighted in the write-up, as are the Le Bec Fin pedigrees of chefs Lee Styer and Jessie Prawlucki.
- Era Atomica, a treasure trove of mid-century modern goods, secures a spot on the list for its extensive collection of vintage kitchenware.
- It wouldn’t be a complete South Philly list if pizza didn’t snag a spot. Marra’s tasty pies (and crusts) receives a nod, as does Pollyodd, East Passyunk’s limoncello distributor.
- The chef at Noir is a Montreal native, which means he cranks out native specialties like poutine and smoked brisket in addition to upscale bar food.
- Finally, Will BYOB’s fine food and chef Christopher Kearse’s conceptual techniques round out the piece.
It only seems right that the South Philly avenue grabbed some foodie press. The stretch has long been known for delicious and authentic Italian fare, and now more and more restaurants are flocking to the avenue.
