Best Eats in Philly

Here at the Center City Team, we are all locals and we love two things: our city, and food! Luckily, Philadelphia has some of the best eats in the United States. And while we love a good Philly cheese steak (how could we not!), we also love the diversity of cuisine found in every pocket of the city.

Many of our favorite Philly neighborhoods offer world-class chefs serving up artisan, gourmet fare right alongside hole-in-the-wall restaurants serving up fascinating ethnic eats and fusion foods.

In short, it’s impossible to get bored of our food scene. Here we share the best eats in Philly—and nothing is off limits! Food halls, fine-dining, and burger shacks, if it’s good food then you can be sure a member of the Center City Team has mowed down there and shared the tale for all hoping to find great new places to eat in Philly.

We hope you enjoy the advice we offer here, and if you need additional information on anything, or to speak with one of our real estate agents, contact the Center City Team: 215.440.2093

Living The Sweet Life at Shane Confectionery

Looking to sate your sweet tooth? The cure for what ails you is right in Old City. There, on Market Street (which, back in 1863, was called “the High Street”) sits a modest sweets shop called Shane Confectionery. But things are far from ordinary inside this establishment. Born in Philadelphia during the time of the Civil War, this candy store […]

Beloved Veggie-Focused Resto Coming to Center City

There are plenty of veggie-focused restos in Center City, a nexus for eateries of all kinds, and there’s no shortage of farm-to-table either. Both these concepts are ones that hip diners are really focusing on these days, and, for the most part, downtown delivers. Still, there’s something exciting about the Philadelphia edition of a well-known from-scratch fast casual eatery, beloved […]

Philly’s Tiniest Wawa Open in Center City

In a large metropolis like Philadelphia, things are usually bigger. The skyscrapers reach tall towards the clouds, the parks are vast and littered with historical markers, and flagshop store locations feature perhaps three floors of retail where their suburban counterparts have only one. But is bigger always better? Not necessarily. Old City Philadelphia is home to the world’s largest Wawa […]

Bars Brawl Over Decadent Decking of the Halls, Customers Win

There’s only nine more days until Christmas… can you believe it? I don’t know about you, but I’m fully in the spirit. I’m halfway done wrapping my Amazonian mountain of gifts – meaning that it is both huge and consists of Amazon boxes – my tree has been up and shining for several weeks, and my cards have all been […]

Beyond Tinsel: Three Bars to Get Your Festivus Spirit Going This Year

I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve given Tinsel a lot of coverage on this blog. The concept of a recurring holiday pop-up bar is a fun one, especially now that the owners have expanded on the concept and gotten in on the Halloween gig as well. December is a time of year when people love to be enveloped in […]

A Movie Theater Finally Comes to Center City… But There’s a Catch

AMC’s new Center City multiplex has been decades in the making. Long has downtown suffered from a lack of cinemas to watch first-run blockbusters on the big screen, and the new screens at the Fashion District Philadelphia will undoubtedly have plenty of butts in its seats going forward. However, at least one patron who has already experienced what the AMC […]

Philadelphia Weddings: The Top Spots for Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes: on a scale of 1-10, how important are they? I’d say about “8,” behind the venue and the bride’s dress, but tied with photography, flowers, and music. Every wedding of every faith shares in common a wedding cake tradition. It can be a towering confection taller than the bride or a simple sheet cake, but everyone knows that […]

Knockin’ ‘Em Back at Center City’s Best Dive Bars

It’s one thing to go out drinking in style, but hipsters and old-timers agree that there’s nothing as homey as your local dive bar. It’s nothing to look at, the food may be questionable, and your fellow patrons may be career alcoholics, but it feels like your home away from home. There’s no gimmick like axe-throwing or Christmas music, but […]
