Stephen Starr’s latest Philly restaurant is way more than just an eatery. The space is a bookstore, music venue, and art gallery, but all of that takes a backseat to the killer food and drink options. A live-fire grill is the focal point of the Mexican-focused menu, serving up meat, seafood, and veggie tacos, along with some smaller plates like guacamole and ceviche. If you want to get fancy, for-the-table house specials include lobster puerto nuevo, adobo lamb shank, and more.
