I love taking long walks and exploring Philly, especially when I discover places like Grace and Proper. Located just a block from the Italian Market in what was once a neighborhood pharmacy this new corner Euro-bar serves Greek and Portuguese influenced sandwiches like the yummy Bifana stuffed with pork loin, garlic and white wine, and mustard on Pão de Água bread and a delicious Porto Laredo Onion Soup. Vegetarians can munch on Pickled Rainbow Carrots and Tomato Pinsa.

For cocktail lovers, sip a Porto Tonico with Ferreira White Port, tonic, grapefruit, and mint or a That Nicholas Cage with bourbon, honey, white truffle, lemon, and lavender. Or enjoy a cheese and charcuterie plate with a glass of Las Dos Maria’s Verdejo. My favorite thing on the menu is the extensive list of Amari Bitters, etc. I promised the bartender to try a different one each time I visit. Great way to end a meal before the trek home. They have outdoor seating, show soccer matches (Yay!) and no reservations, so just pop in, claim a spot and order at the bar. It’s a lovely, friendly spot with original tin ceilings, exposed brick and hexagon tiled floors, and lighting. And you can head over to the Italian Market (check out our article), after to pick up some homemade ravioli and sauce from Talluto’s for Sunday dinner.
