For an upscale pizza experience, Zavino is a great option. It's got a killer wine selection, are dark and intimate, and of course, serve really good pizza. Zavino’s wood burning ovens reach a peak temperature of 900 degrees, helping to perfectly char the crust while eliminating the soggy middles that can often accompany wood-fired pizza. It’s a little pricey, but you're paying for quality.

Top Chef alum Jason Cichonski brings this American eatery with a specialty in burgers and innovative cocktails to Old City. Start with the charred eggplant salsa, wander on over to the GSLT Burger with aged cheddar and house-smoked pickles, and wash it down with the Sex Panther: a granny smith apple & cranberry-infused Cosmopolitan, which we hear is quite pungent.
Brothers Jonathan and Justin Petruce serve up Argentinian-inspired new American fare like roasted-on-the-bone Skate plated with potato dumplings, fennel, and lemon-chicken jus.
