Yardley Inn - Restaurant Review
Enjoy a cold cocktail—and seasonally, a warm fire—while watching the sunset over the Delaware River. In the summer, sit on the patio, and watch the calming river while munching candied walnuts atop a crisp Marguerita Salad. Please a selective palate with an atmosphere that offers choice: dress up, dress down; eat light, eat full; dine fancy or relax in an over-stuffed chair in the plush, yet relaxing, lounge. Satisfy mom’s flavor for flounder, a cousin’s craving for crabcakes, and still get your monthly mignon. Try the Yardley Inn, where classy contemporary is really choice.

Nestled into its charming Midtown Village locale, Olivier Desaintmartin’s second Philadelphia feat, Zinc, is the essence of class meets comfort. In a city filled with attempts at the French bistro, Desaintmartin sets this 11th street gem above the rest by offering unfussy bistro classics and an exclusively French wine selection. Zinc offers diners the rare chance to feel right at home with a dining room décor that features exposed brick, dark polished wood, bistro chalkboards and authentic Parisian paintings. Complete with a knowledgeable and friendly staff, Zinc’s quaint, romantic appeal is reminiscent of a true bistro a vins one might find during a spontaneous stroll through Ol’ Paris.
While a chic center city crowd travels the Avenue of the Arts, diners at Varalli sit back and take in the view. While looking out ceiling-to-floor windows at the corner of Broad & Locust, diners can sample head chef William Carroll's selection of seafood classics fused with flecks of Northern Italy and the Mediterranean. The menu and the restaurant’s playful decor boast a knack for seafood, but that doesn’t mean those not so keen on sea fare should shy away - meats, pastas, salads and fresh vegetables are sure to dazzle carnivores and vegetarians alike. Add an accessible wine list and there is something for everyone to come back to at Varalli.
Acquiring its name from the highway that runs between Provincetown and Cape Cod in Massachusetts, the Fairmount/Art Museum District's Route 6 honors the cuisine adored in small coastal towns from Kennebunkport Maine, to Chestertown Maryland. Presenting a menu that features fresh and seasonal sea-to-table fare with archetypical New England dishes such as clam chowder, lobster rolls, buttermilk fried oysters, daily catch lobster, and fresh whole fish. The atmosphere of Route 6’s decor will carry you away to the tranquil way of life inherent to the sleepy serene shores of the eastern seaside. Inside the establishment, a wood-burning oven and grill not only adds a distinct flavor to the food, but fills the dining room with the smell of oak and fruit notes. The chef's counter, which seats 20, is the perfect place to order oysters and clams from the raw bar, and take a view of the open kitchen.
