The Farm & Fisherman is a 30-seat BYOB owned by husband-wife team Josh & Colleen Lawler. This intimate setting allows for a truly hands-on approach from these two accomplished chefs. Josh served as the former chef de cuisine at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, a renowned restaurant considered one of the pioneers in the locavore/farm-to-table movement. Colleen served as sous chef at the New York Times 3-star restaurant Picholine, known for its focus on quality and creativity. Together, Josh & Colleen have merged the combination of their experiences and focus to return to Philadelphia where they are both from and met while attending Drexel University. The menu, which changes with the nuances of the seasons, features the finest sustainably sourced ingredients including meat, fish, and poultry.
Craig LaBan, in his enthusiastic 3 bell review of The Farm and Fisherman, said “This BYOB exemplifies the best of the farm-to-table movement…This is a restaurant that should restore our faith in the possibilities of a philosophy that’s far more than a fleeting trend.” Philly Magazine also recognized the restaurant awarding it with the Best of Philly 2012 award for Best Farm-to-Table saying “this fresh and inventive BYO is the real deal.”

Welcome to Tria, Philadelphia’s destination for wine, cheese and beer lovers. We serve real wines, cheeses and beers crafted by passionate people.

Why wine, cheese and beer together? Wine and beer have been treasured since the dawn of civilization. We love both, so we decided to put wine and beer on the same level—world-class wines in a blue jeans-casual setting and the best brews without even a hint of frat party. The idea is for wine to loosen up and beer to grow up. And while wine and cheese make a famous and perfect culinary marriage, the steamy secret affair between beer and cheese has been revealed.

Vetri has the longstanding reputation as being one of the most respected and influential Italian restaurants in the country.
After years of working in some the finest kitchens in Italy and the U.S., Chef Marc Vetri returned home to his native Philadelphia, took over the intimate, jewel box townhouse that was once home to the lauded Le Bec Fin. In the early days, the kitchen staff consisted of just Marc and one other cook with his business partner, sommelier Jeff Benjamin manning the front of the house. Together they opened the doors in September 1998. It proved to be a stunning debut, as Vetri—with its outstanding rustic fare, handcrafted pastas, innovative flavor combinations and artful presentations—gained a fast following amongst diners, critics and fellow chefs alike.
Within two years of opening, Vetri received the Philadelphia Inquirer’s highest restaurant rating, and Chef Vetri was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s “Ten Best New Chefs.” In 2005, he won the James Beard Award for “Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic.” Chef Vetri and Benjamin have gone on to open other celebrated, popular restaurants—Osteria (2007), Amis (2010), Alla Spina (2012), Pizzeria Vetri (2013) and Osteria Moorestown (2013)—however, Vetri will forever remain their flagship.
Originally opened and operated with a more traditional a la carte menu, Vetri moved to a tasting menu-only format to fully showcase the constantly evolving, dynamic creativity of Chef Vetri and his kitchen staff, and their desire to offer an unparalleled dining experience. Upon arriving at their table, guests are treated as they would be in Italy and are eased into dinner with a selection of stuzzichini (hors d’oeuvres). With palates and stomachs primed, menus arrive—Di Pesce (fish), Di Verdure (vegetable), Di Terra (from the earth) and Dolce (dessert)—allowing for both the perusal of the season’s best offerings, and a conversation between guests and the restaurant’s staff to shape the meal. From there, the kitchen goes to work crafting personalized six-course tastings. Though the menus frequently change, reflecting the finest of what’s available at the market, guests can still find longtime Vetri signature dishes such as Spinach Gnocchi with Brown Butter; Sweet Onion Crepe with White Truffle, and Baby Goat with Freshly Stone-Milled Polenta.
