Looking for a quick meal made with fresh, farm-to-table ingredients? I recently visited High Street Provisions and I was pleasantly surprised by all of their delicious options. High Street Provisions is located in Franklin’s Table Food Hall, right next to the CVS on 34th and Walnut Street. This cafe is actually an offshoot of the highly acclaimed restaurant, High Street on Market. If you want me to blog about this restaurant, leave me a comment below!
First thing’s first, if you stop by High Street you HAVE to try their bread. Whether it be on its own, or as a sandwich, you won’t regret it! I try not to eat a lot of gluten, but their bread is worth the splurge.
Wondering what you should order? My favorite menu items were the Sausage & Rabe sandwich, the Ham & Cheese sandwich, and the Beef Stew.
It all was seriously so delicious, and I can’t wait to stop by again soon! On a side note, High Street also offers catering services, which seem so delicious and may come in handy during the holiday season.

Looking for an intimate happy hour spot? Stop by Fishtown Social Wine Bar! A couple of weeks ago I wandered into this little wine café , and I was pleasantly surprised. This hangout serves high quality liqour, beer, and wine options, as well as small bites.
Truly a place for the locals, Fishtown Social’s cocktails were refreshing and strong! I started with one of their happy hour drink specials, which was made with armagnac- a spirit I had never tried before. Next, I tried an aperol spritz (which has become my new favorite drink). This drink featured aperol liqour, prosecco, seltzer water, and a twist of orange. Expect to have a second round of drinks at this place! And maybe even a third, or fourth round (lol).
They also serve a variety of happy hour snacks! My favorite bites were the truffle popcorn and the house made cheeseboard. For the cheeseboard, I decided to try one of their locally sourced goat cheeses topped with honey, and served with fresh fruit and bread.
I already can’t wait until the next time I head back to Fishtown Social! Where’s your favorite place to go for happy hour? Let me know in the comments section below.
Did you say Brazilian Steakhouse? Count me in! Last week I ventured to Chima Steakhouse and let me tell you… the food was SO good. Not only were the restaurant staff extremely attentive, but the atmosphere was fun, fancy, and interactive.
We started off the meal ordering drinks, and afterwards our waitress redirected us to the salad bar. HONESTLY, this may have been one of my favorite parts of the entire meal. Not only do they provide various salads for you to choose from, but they also have Italian meats and soup options. I was a big fan of their Kale salad. The perfect introduction to a delicious meal!
The most fun part about dining at Chima is that gauchos walk around and cut fresh pieces of meat directly onto your plate, similar to other Brazilian Steakhouses. My favorite cuts were the picanha sirloin, baby top sirloin, and the filet mingon (insert heart eyes emoji lol). Check out my Instagram stories for more pictures!
As if two courses wasn’t enough, I had to end my meal with something sweet! I tasted the Brazilian Trio, which consisted of three different flavored creams. My favorite flavors were the chocolate and walnut, but the coconut was still tasty!
Overall, if you’re looking for a fun and fanciful night out you should definitely consider Chima! Have any more questions? Leave them in the comments section below!
A few days ago I ventured to Helm, a quaint and relaxed BYO located on the outskirts of Fishtown. This restaurant serves american-styled cuisine and provides diners with a personable and contemporary atmosphere. They’re proud of their fresh and wholesome meals that are made with farm to table ingredients.
Helm provides a unique dining experience. Rather than the typical pre-printed menu, all of their appetizers and entrees are written in shorthand on a hanging blackboard sign. Your waiter or waitress will review and explain the entire menu with you before you order. Since their ingredients are locally sourced, their menu changes at any given time.
The best part is that they have so many gluten free and dairy free options! They’ll cater to your needs and make changes based on your dietary restrictions. AND they’re a BYO, so you can bring your fave boos if you desire!
They serve a ton of creative and unique appetizers, so if you go I recommend ordering a bunch of small plates! My friends and I had the BEST gluten free eggplant with ricotta and fresh peaches. So different, yet so delicious!
