What you’re getting: Garlic-herb mussels
The name of this Fitler Square restaurant is actually pretty accurate, so it’s good news that it offers daily deals that’ll help you get through some of the sweetest seafood options. Eventually. This means all-you-can-eat mussel Mondays, impromptu lobster dinners at a discount, and seasonal specialties that include things like soft-shell crab alongside $3 Yuenglings. Bonus: if you're looking for a fresh brunch spot, this place does not disappoint, whether you opt for crabmeat Benedict or shrimp & grits with a side of endless bellinis.
Washington Square West
What you’re getting: Spinach, prosciutto, and mozzarella-stuffed chicken breast
With so many Italian restaurants in Philly, this unassuming BYOB can be easily overlooked -- but it shouldn’t be. The savory pastas (like the braised beef gnocchi), and some sweet pizza options are some of the most perfect comfort foods you’ll find on this side of the park, and the place gets extra points for somehow making a gluten-free Italian menu that is actually not-terrible, meaning Giorgio leaves no diner behind when it comes to pasta.
