The Pretzel Bakery Behind the quaint little Dutch door on 15th street, the staff at The Pretzel Bakery are hard at work. Every morning, they mix, mold, and twist together dough into their signature Philadelphia-style soft pretzels, whipping them up in small batches to ensure they're served at the peak of freshness. Each pretzel comes out of the oven fluffy and golden-brown, begging to be pulled apart and dipped in one of the shop's house mustards or dunked into creamy pools of Nutella or Philadelphia cream cheese. Of course, to get a true taste of Philly, guests will want to wash their salty snacks down with a regional beverage, such as a Pennsylvania Dutch birch beer, a Frank’s black cherry wishniak soda, or a nice frosty glass of scrapple.

High-fived by the Washington Post, Addie's sets the culinary stage with an eclectic spread of fresh seafood and ingredients harvested from a slew of local farms. The dinner menu spotlights dishes such as sautéed spanish mackerel delicately serenaded by grated pasta and tomato-anchovy fondue ($21), as well as a locally raised pork chop chaperoned by pumpkin grits, turnips, and brussels sprouts ($24). Diners can fortify meals with desserts ($8–9), wines, or an impenetrable fortress of toothpicks. Addie's lunch menu showcases lighter fare, such as sautéed shrimp and stone-ground grits ($16) or the fried oyster po boy loaded with cornmeal-coated Chincoteague oysters and chipotle remoulade ($12), which adds a creamy punch rivaled only by a boxing glove filled with ranch dressing.
