Washingtonian.com’s Eat Your Way Through Philly provides an itinerary that samples some of the city’s gastronomic delights. Some of our favorites include:
Walnut Street Supper Club (walnutstreetsupperclub.com), an institution that has hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra and Liza Minnelli. Italian specialties and steaks are served with retro glam by a singing waitstaff.
Reading Terminal Market (readingterminalmarket.org), the oldest farmers market in the US, where you’ll find a bazaar full of farm-sourced delicacies, from Pennsylvania Dutch pies to pickles. Sample oysters, Cajun jambalaya, Southern barbecue, French crepes, pad Thai, or Italian hoagies at more than 15 dining counters.
Franklin Mortgage and Investment Co., a mood-lit and romantic speakeasy that dates back to Prohibition and was named one of America’s best bars by Esquire.
