1. Nomad Pizza 1305 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA 19107

Nomad is one of our favorite spots for wood-fired pizza in the city. Especially if you are able to go during happy hour or the Two For Tuesday special (buy one pie, get one free). All ingredients are locally sourced and have a pretty good rotating draft list of local and craft beers. When it comes to pizza, any meal has to include the Spicy Sopressata, which comes with thinly sliced Soppressata, garlic, red pepper, and a drizzle of honey.

3. Union Taco 712 W Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19123

The dude behind Verdad says his new 20-seat taqueria's got a "San Diego" feel where you can scarf seasonal eats like strawberry habanero guacamole, Pork Carnitas tacos w/ chipotle bbq, pomegranate & avocado, or Black Truffle flatbread w/ chicken confit, mushrooms, goat cheese & pesto.

4. Tria Taproom 2005 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103

The Rittenhouse location of this cozy bar boasts a number of carefully-curated, seasonal beers, wines, and ciders. And in a true taproom fashion, without a bottle in sight. Big windows, a solid-glass, climate-controlled wine "cellar" that dominates the back wall, and an airy-for-its-size interior -- lined with sparsely-appointed counters and rustic stools -- creates the perfect atmosphere to enjoy craft libations, wood-fired grilled flatbreads, and sophisticated snacks.

5. Taqueria Feliz 4400 Main St, Philadelphia, PA 19127

This riotously colorful Mextaurant from the crew behind La Calaca Feliz is plying you with authentic south-of-the-border eats, including the usual tacos/tortas/enchiladas, plus "funky stuff" like lamb heart skewers and beef tongue tacos.
