We at SHOPHOUSE love to eat. We host weekly dinners for friends, which we will be sharing with you over the upcoming months. In the meantime we wanted to share some of our favorite spots to eat and drink in Philadelphia.


Mr Martino’s Trattoria

Located on the new “Restaurant Row”, Passyunk Avenue, we always gather a few friends and a few bottles of wine and cozy up in this quaint spot. Our favorite dish is the Pasta with Zucchini and Basil, it is so simple and so delicious. The owners are the kindest people you will ever meet and you never feel rushed to leave. Expect to wait a little for your food, and enjoy your good wine and even better company.

1646 East Passyunk Avenue


Barbuzzo in Midtown Village is a great stop for a fantastic business lunch. Sharing is encouraged, so save this for business associates you are close with. We love ordering a few dishes and amongst our favorites are the Kale Salad, Homemade Ricotta and Budino (the best dessert, ever!). If you have some time to kill after lunch, stop into Duross & Langel for some of their amazing soaps and lotions.

110 South 13th Street


We like a cocktail every now and again and find that sometimes the simplest are the best. Southwark in Bella Vista is a great stop for a great drink mixed by an even greater personality. We love the bartenders here, and the libations that they serve us.
