Just another advantage of Darley Green living is the proximity to some of Philadelphia’s award-winning restaurants. You don’t need a Philadelphia townhome to experience the tantalizing array of gastronomic delights that abound just minutes from your own door.

Local favorites

pats steak sandwich

Pat’s Steaks

Family-owned and operated, Pat’s King of Steaks is home to the original cheesesteak, invented by owner Pat Olivieri in 1930. Stop by 9th Street & Passyunk Avenue for a taste of the town’s most beloved sandwich. This popular tourist draw is easy to find, just follow the scent of fried onions!

Hankering for a juicy pulled pork sandwich? Look no further than Beard-winning restaurant, John’s Roast Pork on Snyder Avenue – the ambience is decidedly casual but the food is out of this world.

Zahav restaurant food spread


Another crowd favorite is Zahav, which features an innovative menu centered around Israeli cuisine.

Talulah’s Garden was just named one of the nation’s top ten restaurants by Bon Appetit. This Philly hotspot serves international dishes based on farm fresh ingredients: think soft shell crabs with spicy fennel and golden potato gnocchi.



For a romantic date night, head to Amada for Spanish wine and tapas. The Old City hangout is known for its cozy atmosphere and great sangria.

Or if you want a quick bite on the go, order the tacos al pastor at El Zarape, which cooks up traditional Mexican fare.
