The Best Places to Dine in the The East Passyunk Neighborhood

The Best Places to Dine in the The East Passyunk Neighborhood

Nestled in South Philadelphia is a bustling neighborhood known for its diverse dining scene.

We are talking about East Passyunk, located just a quick commute away from our Conshohocken apartments, where many of the neighborhood's chefs have earned acclaim from The New York Times among other publications. 

Eateries not to be missed include:

Chhaya Cafe 

Chhaya is a place the locals wish they could keep a secret. The cafe strives to serve the best brunch in Philadelphia, and it often hosts art shows during the neighborhood's Second Saturday celebrations. Visitors find Chhaya offers a home away from home, and it features everything from comfortable couches to window seats. In the kitchen, Chef Varnana Beuria makes uncomplicated food that both comfort and delights. Options include huevos rancheros waffles, blackened chicken wraps, and truffled egg toast. 

Fond 

With vibrant flavors and warm service, it's no wonder that Fond draws a crowd. Owned by a husband/wife duo, the restaurant is perfect for any occasion from a casual night out to a celebratory dinner. Guests always enjoy friendly service, and Fond features oversized windows overlooking the neighborhood's Singing Fountain. Offerings include pork belly, braised rabbit, and Green Circle chicken. For dessert, try the warm chocolate bread pudding. 

Laurel 

Owned by Top Chef winner Nick Elmi, Laurel is an intimate restaurant with just 22 seats. The restaurant provides a memorable dining experience and is where many locals celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements. Chef Elmi prepares refined, seasonal fare with a focus on sustainability and simplicity. Guests can enjoy a delicious six or nine-course menu. Choices include poached lobster, dry-aged PA duck, and slow roasted cod.
