STANDARD TAP, 2nd & Poplar Streets, Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, 215•238•0630 Exclusively featuring Philadelphia-area fine craft breweries, this spot is one unique bar, with some of the best heart-warming food around and atmosphere to boot. Pub crawling in London anyone? Not a surprise that their produce is locally grown at Greensgrow Farm, the nationally recognized leader in urban farming and locally-prepared provisions...
The mussels are the winner on the menu, the broth so flavorful that you end up eating too much of that big, crusty warm bread they serve you, practically a loaf (not good for the carb counter, but sooo sick). Try one of their boutique beers: Victory, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head or Yards, all served in a cool vintage-y glass. And the menu is written on the chalkboard daily...we love this place and we'll wait to snag a seat at the bar!
