This week's top dish from Eater Philly, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
RITTENHOUSE — NYC's Shake Shack finally opened up in Rittenhouse. The lines are already ridiculous, and probably won't slow down for quite awhile. But, the burgers, the shakes, the "Concretes," and everything else are well worth the wait. Looks like this summer is the beginning of the burger wars between Village Whiskey and shiny new Shake Shack.
CENTER CITY — Honeygrow opened up this week at 16th and Sansom, and the interior design is absolutely stunning. The concept is fast-casual build your own stir-fry and salads, with the menu designed by Shola Olunloyo. Owner Justin Rosenberg is ready for the masses, and has dropped a paradigm shift on the lunch scene in Philly.
PENNSPORT — The Industry opened up at E. Moyamensing and Reed Streets, and is owned by the Good Dog crew. The bar is dedicated to the workers of the food industry, and offers discounts for everyone who suffers in the front or back of the house all over town. The menu was designed and executed by Pat Szoke, a Vetri and Farm and Fisherman vet with deft hands in the pub grub game. Lots of great craft beer on the premises, of course.
ALL OVER — It's Philly Beer Week, and that means lots of great beer, of course. Check out all the great stuff that happened this week, and there's still plenty coming up this weekend if you missed the first 8 days.
