"Heritage" is my new favorite go-to Philadelphia restaurant to take family, guests and visitors. Every week night there's also live jazz!

Consistently impressive, Heritage is my new favorite go-to restaurant to bring family, visiting guests, and everyone else I know who has yet to try it. Every night of the week dinner is accompanied by live jazz. Smooth melodies fill up the room, while spirits and tantalizing recipes flow from the kitchen to our table.

Dishes are meant to be shared family style, which is a great way for everyone to get a sampling of their rustic New American flavors. The establishment also boasts an outdoor urban garden, that carries its way to the inside walls cascading with fresh plants.

I have yet to try a dish I have not loved. Their Beef Tartare has delicate and fresh flavors, the house made Burrata with roasted beet puree and sunflower seeds is plentiful and bright, and the Rabbit Meatballs are savory and delectable with additions of sofrito, creme fraiche, & grilled bread.

Three memorable larger plates have been: the Vegetable Board; the chorizo-spiced Pan-Roasted Monkfish, with fingerlings, beans, & romesco; and the Lancaster Chicken with parisian gnocchi, & braised red cabbage.

One of my choice house cocktails is the Big Poppa, a mixture of spiced rum, pineapple, ginger beer, and fernet float. Heritage also has an extensive draft list, so large, it covers an entire wall of this former warehouse.

To cap off dinner, the peanut butter Semifreddo Sandwich with double chocolate cookies is my favorite dessert for sharing.
