Philadelphia's Redding Terminal

Jo Jo at morimoto's

Morimoto has an interior - awash in glass and colors - that is both striking and serene in its design. INSIDER TIP. The mezzanine level lounge is a great spot to have a pre - meal cocktail while waiting for your table.

Le Cochon Noir

Jazz, blues, and bbq.

Tommy Gunns American Barbeque

Glad we went to this little gem. Jo and I had the opportunity to take our good friend and hostess, Rose, to this iconic bbq place. We shared pulled pork, smoked wings, brisket and last but not least, there deep fried mac & cheese.

Sweet Lucy's Smokehouse

By far, the best bbq I had in Philly.
Had to try the brisket, mashed sweet potatoes, baked beans, and bread pudding. We felt guilty Aaron and Rose worked that day so we brought some home to them. Guess what new item is going to be offered in 2013 ?
