Landmark American Tap & Grill aims to live up to its name, providing a dining destination for patrons seeking classic, seasonal American cuisine matched with a rotating selection of craft draughts and bottles. The ever-evolving menu features appetite-slaking classics such as wings, burgers, and ribs, and a unique brunch spread showcases brioche french toast and savory breakfast nachos made with home fries. Bites pair with beers crafted in stateside cities such as Detroit and Grand Rapids, as well as those from overseas locales.
Diners sit at the polished bar or pull up vibrant red chairs to tables, sharing conversations and toasts to toasting amid exposed brick walls. The Landmark also provides a late-night menu to ensure performances aren’t underscored by growling stomachs.
Named after the proprietors' father—a longtime veteran of the restaurant trade—Mikey's American Grill & Sports Bar continues the family's tradition of serving good food in a congenial atmosphere. Seated in the light-filled dining room, guests peel their eyes away from the sports-filled big-screen TVs above the bar to peruse a menu of classic bar standbys. Juicy 8-ounce burgers arrive piled high with tantalizing toppings including bacon, goat cheese, and fried eggs. Their tater tot brethren are no less decorated, coming tricked out with extras ranging from jalapenos and blue cheese to grilled chicken. The thirsty receive equal consideration, with bartenders pouring beer, original cocktails, and fishbowls that let friends share their libations or help pet tetras just loosen up for once in their lives.
A crack sounds as the bat connects with the ball, and you cheer with the rest of the crowd. You're not exactly in the ballpark, though?you're in McFadden's Ballpark. Located at the third base gate of Citizen's Bank Park, the pub gives patrons a spot to enjoy Phillies action nearby without requiring a ticket to the game or a pass from the Phanatic. Each at-bat is complemented with hearty bar food favorites, from Guinness shepherd?s pie to beer-battered fish 'n' chips. Angus beef burgers arrive topped with sliced corned beef or Irish cheddar, while fries can be loaded with ribeye steak, cheese, or house-made turkey gravy. McFadden?s comforting fare and frosty beverages are served up before, during, and after games.
The Adobe Cafe's chefs find a way to accommodate nearly every diner without sacrificing the piquant flavors and aromas attributed to southwestern cuisine. They skillet-sear filet mignon and marinate chicken breasts and duck before tossing the seasoned meat with black beans, sautéed green peppers, and white onions for fajitas. But they also alter their traditional Mexican-inspired fare by substituting ground beef, chorizo, flank steak, and carnitas with seitan and tofu for vegetarians or meat eaters' pet goats. The chefs' use of ranchero sauce, roasted peppers, jerk seasoning, and even barbecue has earned the eatery a number of awards; The Adobe Cafe was recently named Best Southwestern Restaurant in Philadelphia by LocalEats.
It's easy to quickly feel at home at Liberty Bar?Phillies pennants and beer signage make the cozy space feel familiar, chicken wings and cheeseburgers fill the menu, and your bed is set up at the bar. When local and international soccer matches aren't playing on the flat-screen TVs, there's often DJs or karaoke sing-alongs.
By 4 p.m. in the UK, weekend soccer matches are in full swing. In Philadelphia, where it's only 11 a.m., Liberty Bar & Grill is just opening its doors so that patrons can catch the day's action live on flat-screen televisions. Soccer jerseys adorn the exposed brick interior of the cozy bar—which, later in the day, accommodates DJs, karaoke, and other televised sports until its daily 2 a.m. closing.
The kitchen calls it a day only a half-hour earlier, diligently serving late-night helpings of pizza cheesesteaks and house-made roast beef sandwiches. An extensive beer selection complements eats, as do mixed beer drinks such as the Blacksmith, a Guinness and Smithwick's Ale blend combined via hard labor over an anvil.
