Benny the Bum's
Benny the Bum's 19-year-old local establishment offers an extensive menu of fresh seafood dishes that range from raw-bar specialties to pastas. Chefs arrange massive platters of steamed crabs, shrimp, and clams along with garlic sauce and potatoes, and pots of housemade chowder and creamy crab soups bubble on the stove. Servers tote plates and glasses of colorful cocktails into spacious dining rooms, where glittery silver pillars, nautical knickknacks, and flat-screen televisions catch the eyes of patrons seated at booths and tabletops. A lively, well-established local joint, Benny's was lauded by actor and Philadelphia native Bradley Cooper as his favorite restaurant in the city.
