VISIT PHILADELPHIA®

ANNE KIM-DANNIBALE Group Editor, Where Traveler @wheretraveler

t’s almost summer and Philadelphians are gearing up with all kinds of warm-weather fun. This month, we take you to some of the city’s best restaurants to try now, from new barbecue joints to tasty pasta places and even a design stunner inside one of the city’s top museums. Turn to page 6 for a delicious exploration sure to have your social media buzzing. I don’t know about you, but May also has me thinking about shopping, and this city offers some of the country’s best. All the big-name stores are here, of course, but some of my favorites are the locally owned boutiques selling only-in-Philly goods. See page 10 for clothing and gifts you aren’t likely to find anywhere else in the city. May is also graduation time in Philadelphia, putting all eyes on University City. It’s one of this town’s liveliest neighborhoods with tons of things to see and do. Where to start? Turn to page 11, where we show you how to navigate this hopping zone’s top-notch restaurants, hip shops and cool places to drink it all in. Hungry for even more? Be sure to check the Calendar (page 4), where you’ll find all the top shows, concerts, festivals and happenings coming to town in May. Prepare to be busy!

with drinks and apps at Double Knot and then a show at the Kimmel Center or at Wilma Theatre when Ballet X is in town. Q: WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO GO ON YOUR DAY OFF? A: I love to explore Fish-

town, go out for a run on the Schuykill River Trail and have brunch at Hungry Pigeon in the Queen Village neighborhood. EXPERT TIP

Fresh Feasts

From pulled pork to pasta pomodoro, naan to New York strip steak, new restaurants across Philadelphia are taking the city’s gastronomy scene by storm. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites, along with recommendations on can’t-miss dishes. So work up an appetite, snag a table and get ready for a memorable meal. AMY GORDON

ALPEN ROSE

At celebrated chef Michael Schulson’s newest Midtown Village spot, the dÊcor is a throwback to bygone days, with old photos and books, decorative sconces and shimmering chandeliers. Meat is the main attraction here; thickcut, dry-aged steaks are cooked on a wood-burning

grill. But options range from prime rib to roasted chicken, all complemented by hearty sides like bone marrow toast, creamed spinach and beer-battered onion rings. Feeling extra hungry? Channel your inner Fred Flintstone with a 45-ounce tomahawk steak. 116 S. 13TH ST., 215.600.0709, WWW.ALPENROSEPHL.COM

MAKHANI MODERN INDIAN

This casual Queen Village eatery by the husbandand-wife team behind Bridget Foy’s serves fromscratch staples like rigatoni alla vodka and chicken FranÇaise. But for flavors you won’t find anywhere else in the area, order the Bainbridge greens. This shareable dish, a take on central New York’s classic Utica greens, incorporates prosciutto, cherry peppers and bread crumbs. To dine like the Italians do, begin your meal with an aperitivo before moving on to the vino.

This upbeat Loft District spot draws on Mexican and Southwestern styles with a twist. Patrons might come here for the $5 margaritas, but they stay for the flavorful cuisine and festive atmosphere. Artwork inspired by Day of the Dead imagery adorn the walls, and the menu matches the aesthetic with options like tilapia tacos, vaca frita fajitas and chorizo fondito. Try the Johnnys Favorite enchiladas, a house specialty that comes with fajita chicken, tequila sauce and queso mixto, alongside rice and beans.

At this cozy Old City BYOB, the menu is as vibrant as the colorful peacock mural on the wall. Northern Indian dishes like goat curry and lamb kebabs are cooked in a specially designed tandoori oven, resulting in layered flavors that elevate an ordinary meal into a memorable dining experience. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of savory and sweet, order the mango chicken, the restaurant’s signature dish.

STIR

Last October, the Philadelphia Museum of Art unveiled this stunning spot, bringing gastronomic appeal to the iconic cultural attraction. Designed by the legendary Frank Gehry, the warm and inviting space is in itself a work of art, with an eye-catching wooden sculptural centerpiece hanging from the ceiling, Douglas fir walls, red oak floors and an open kitchen. With an ever-changing selection of dishes highlighting locally sourced ingredients, the fine-dining venue emphasizes seasonality and terroir. You can’t go wrong

TRADESMAN’S

The newest endeavor from Craft Concepts Group (BRU Craft & Wurst, U-Bahn) opened its doors in August, bringing down-home barbecue to Midtown Village. The restaurant gets its name from its location in the his-

toric Tradesman’s Trust building, which dates back to 1906. While the bi-level space features a modern, open layout, it maintains its historic charm with original features like theater-style relief ceilings and terrazzo tile floors. The kitchen churns out slow-cooked, house-smoked meats like chicken, ribs, brisket and pulled pork, along with collard greens, cornbread and other classic sides. Can’t choose? Order a sampler platter for the whole table to share. 1322 CHESTNUT ST., 267.457.3994, WWW.TRADESMANSPHL.COM
