With roots firmly planted in the tradition of the izakaya—Japanese pubs designed for unwinding and socializing with friends over a modest sake and street-food selection—Yakitori Boy focuses its culinary philosophy on interaction above all else. In this spirit, the menu brims with modestly priced tapas-style dishes meant for sharing—sushi comes in miniature four-piece rolls, tempura plates bear only a half-dozen or so of the crispy morsels, and diners order the eatery's signature creation, yakitori, by the single skewer. Of course, guests can still splurge on a full entrée, as head sushi chef Tasaka Yasuhiko calls on his 40 years of experience to craft full 12-piece helpings of specialty caviar- and tempura-topped maki, while chefs in the bustling kitchen whip up traditional don, or creative meat preparations served over a bowl of rice. A floor above the dining room's geometric lines and romantic lighting, a karaoke lounge urges diners to keep the celebration rolling with a public stage and eight private rooms ideal for parties of up to 20 or solo performances of "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" on repeat.

An always-bustling Northern Liberties tavern, Standard Tap, which opened in 1999, was at the forefront of what’s generally called the gastropub revolution, with its warmly lit space, hand-built bar, complete lack of TVs, draft-only beer selection highlighting tri-state breweries and the enticing seasonal menu. The whitewashed brick exterior echoes the craft philosophy, with its faded, custom-painted signs. Find a seat in this multi-room space – the charming second-floor outdoor deck beckons in nice weather – and order popular favorites like mussels and sausage or the duck-confit salad, with its luscious, slow-cooked meat. Chalkboards throughout announce the many daily specials, at times featuring produce from the nearby Greensgrow Farms co-op.

An Exotic Ambiance

Bolts of crimson and green fabric embellished with golden patterns adorn the walls of Fez Moroccan Restaurant. Seated atop cushioned stools, diners surround the room's low-slung circular tables as Moroccan music echoes throughout the space and Friday and Saturday evenings herald the arrival of belly dancers. Collectively, these elements create an unmistakably Morroccan atmosphere.

A Feast for the Senses

As evidenced by the swirling aromas of saffron, honey and almonds, and harissa-cumin sauces, the chefs are equally committed to the task of capturing the essence of Morocco. In addition to the selection of kabobs and tagines, the menu features a variety of vegetarian as well as meat-laden couscous dishes. The savory smells mingle with the slightly sweet smoke of the fruit-flavored shisha smoldering in the hookahs.

What Do the Experts Say About Fez Moroccan Restaurant?

  • Gayot described the restaurant's atmosphere as "a setting out of Arabian nights."
  • CBS Philly declared it one of the Top Hookah Bars In Philadelphia.
  • Zagat recommends this intimate Moroccan hideway for a "culinary adventure."

At the crossroads where bowling and fitness meet stands Sweat Fitness and Frames, a facility that houses both a full gym and a 10-lane bowling alley under the same roof. On the bowling side, competitors rack up points and quench their thirst thanks to the center's BYOB policy and strict ban on water fountains that dispense vinegar. Fitness professionals maintain surveillance over the gym area, where they offer up advice to exercisers using weights and cardio equipment. Group fitness classes are available throughout the week to members, who also enjoy free access to the bowling lanes.

Q&A with Mike Bulboff, Owner

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

We were able to do a emergency bellows replacement for Flogging Molly's Matt Hensley one day before their show.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?

Every day, we meet customers from all over the world who play their own unique styles of accordion music. It's like going to a concert in a new country every day.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

I found my father's dusty old accordion in the attic at age 17. Since that first encounter, we've had about 3,000 accordions come and go, and I have seen and played every kind you can think of.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We play every one of our instruments on our YouTube channel: user libertybellows.
