Tastebuds' upscale menu serves homemade takeout and prepared foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Start a long day of spelunking off right with a bacon, egg, and cheese bagel ($4.50) or stop in during a break from serving jury duty on the Q Continuum's trial of humanity for a filet-mignon and caramelized-onion panini ($7.99). The deli rotates its take-home entree specials daily alongside healthy regular favorites such as the eggplant parmesan ($8.99/lb) and vegetable quesadillas ($3.99 each). You can also accent any repast with fresh bread from local bakeries, fair-trade coffee, imported and domestic cheeses, specialty teas, Boar’s Head deli meat, and other specialties. Delectable desserts such as the triple-fudge brownie ($1.99), Oreo cookie cake ($4.99), or hand-dipped ice cream treats (prices vary) provide enticing endings to any meals that don't naturally end with the real murderer being unmasked. This Groupon can also be used toward Tastebuds' catering service.
Started as a fish-flinging pushcart in 1919, Ippolito's Seafood now fills its shop with fresh-caught fruits of the sea, as well as prepared pescatarian meals and more. Spring's seasonal species include buttery black cod (market price) and MSC–certified Alaskan and Canadian halibut (market price), known as the steak of fish for its firm flesh and gentle, bovine-like temperament. This monger's menu of ready-made morsels includes a Maine shrimp-roll sandwich ($6) and classic South Philly crabs and spaghetti ($10). The diabolical deviled-crab-stuffed flounder meal is consumed most effectively with a pitchfork and knife ($13), and the wild-caught jumbo-shrimp meal proudly models its plus-sized motorcycle jacket and chaps ($15).
In 1924, the Stratton family broke ground on a farm and began growing deep roots for vegetables and family alike. Since then, four generations of the Stratton family have worked the land, cultivating crops of sweet corn and raising flocks of dorset sheep. The family invites visitors onto its property to celebrate autumn with festive attractions including hayrides, pick-your-own pumpkins, and a corn maze.
Rittenhouse Dentists' staff unfurrows brows with Botox injections that keep faces smooth for up to four months. Staffers first explain the procedure in a pre-treatment consultation, then they inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin, which stills facial muscles that create creases and twitch irritably whenever they pass a post office. Clients can watch wrinkles fading as muscles relax and may continue to see improvements for 30 days.
