What's Happening in:  All over South Philly 

19 South Philly dining destinations rank on Philly Mag’s ’50 Best Restaurants’ list

Every year Philly Mag releases their list of the city’s best restaurants. With South Philly’s top notch dining spots, we’ve come to expect a strong turnout on lists like this one. For the end of 2016, these 19 South Philly spots ranked in the top 50.

Laurel 057

Laurel has been knocked out of the number one spot that it held on the list for years, but that doesn’t change the East Passyunk Avenue restaurant’s reputation one bit. After all, it is now a four bell restaurant, and number 2 on the list isn’t too bad either.

Quick Hits: Laban loves Serpico, Rock Paper Scissors tourney, Carpenter Square lookin’ good

  • In case you missed it, Craig Laban came this close to awarding Serpico, which opened a few months back at 604 South St., a four bell review. Instead, he bestowed three bells while praising the place as “one of the city’s most compelling restaurants.” Read the full review here. But does anyone out there have reviews of their own?
  • 2nd Street Brewhouse in Pennsport is hosting a Rock Paper Scissors tournament on Sat. Oct 12, complete with cash and other prizes, plus plenty of Oktoberfest and pumpkin ales. Find the Facebook event here. First place is worth $50, some beer prizes and $20 gift certificate. Not bad
  •  The Philly Real Estate Blog has an update with some nice pictures of Carpenter Square, the 11-home, 6-condo development with a commercial space coming to 17th and Carpenter Streets in G-Ho.

  • Snyder House, the veterans treatment facility we told you about in March, is nearly ready to open at 1425 Snyder Ave., and Hidden City checked in last week. The site says that the 40-bed facility, formerly known as the Baptist Institute for Christian Workers, will be leased by the federal VA and will offer veterans “individual and group therapy, education related to medical conditions, health and wellness classes, computer skills classes, housing support services, vocational support services, chaplain services and family support services.” Read the full story here.
  • Phyllis Stein-Novack stopped by the ambitious Serpico on South Street and found that “fresh, top-quality ingredients were used in every creative dish we sampled.” And, on her way to giving the restaurant three tips of the toque, she said: “Thank goodness it is well-lit.”

Take a look at Serpico, Stephen Starr’s southern-most outpost

Serpico, the buzzy offering from Stephen Starr and celebrated chef Peter Serpico, is opening tomorrow at 604 South St., which used to be a Foot Locker. A bit of a step up, huh? Get it?

Serpico, the chef, comes from New York’s famous Momofuku restaurant group, so the food blogosphere has been salivating for months. Of course, it seems Serpico imported a New York price tag, (Foobooz said you shouldn’t be surprised about dropping $100 a head), so we can’t imagine this will become one of our regular haunts.
