Era on Poplar Street has the look and je ne sais quoi of a dive bar, but serves a whole menu of Ethiopian food that you should cross the city to eat. To know Era is to love Era. Head to the link in our IG story to be convinced why you should leave your house sometime soon and eat doro wot and gomen at the bar there (especially if you never plan nights out in Fairmount...like ever).

@sooodelicioussoulfoodcafe recently opened a permanent location in Washington Square West that serves the same comforting fried chicken, mac & cheese, and banana pudding as their original truck.

Philly has an innumerable amount of good Middle Eastern restaurants, but there are fewer options if you’re set on eating Turkish food. @peraphilly does the job with impressive cold mezze and charm in a corner spot on North 2nd Street. The next time you need a BYOB choice that’s slightly more exciting than your regular old neighborhood spot, come here for date night or family dinner.

Neither Don Draper nor a multi-level marketing scheme could sell the texture of a cold slippery booger like an oyster can. But there are approximately forty more reasons to love oysters beyond their taste. When oyster shells are recycled properly, they can be used to restore shoreline reef structures that have been damaged by overfishing, dredging, and erosion. And, now, Philly's seafood spots can help out free of charge. Read the details on the city's new sustainability program for restaurants linked in our IG story.

Meet the Philly 15, the tiny corner of the internet where we tell you about Philadelphia’s best new restaurants.

Cheers Foobooz! “Finally, we here at Foobooz HQ are big David Bowie fans, so there was no way we were going to let this week’s News Round-Up come to an end without letting you know about the Trestle Inn’s all-vinyl go-go party celebrating the legacy of The Thin White Duke.
