Great Global Cuisines in Philadelphia

Need a trip? This month, travel through food, and get a taste of different parts of the world with these five dishes. No matter what spices or flavors you're craving, you can find them all on Reserve.

Around the World in 5 Dishes

AMERICAN - Chicken and Dumplings (Heritage - Northern Liberties)

Heritage is a rustic restaurant with seasonal New American fare. Situated inside a former Northern Liberties warehouse, the homey restaurant offers plenty of places for gathering, from the 40-foot bar (where 38 beers are available on tap) to the cedar-paneled dining room and the rooftop garden.

KOREAN - Chicken Katsu (Southgate - Rittenhouse Square)

Named for a South Korean landmark and the gateway location of both South Street and South Philadelphia, Southgate is an Asian-inspired gastropub featuring Korean dishes. A select menu of small and large plates, rice bowls and salads is available to enjoy in the intimate, industrial-chic space along with specialty cocktails, sake, soju, wines and draft beers.

EUROPEAN - Roasted Red Peppers (Garces Trading Company - Washington Square)

At Garces Trading Co., award-winning Chef Jose Garces and Chef de Cuisine Kyle Baddorf offer European bistro fare inspired by some of their favorite restaurants from around the world, with a particular focus on those in Italy, Spain and France. A selection of cocktails, wines and beers complements the cuisine –– which also includes selections from dessert and weekend brunch menus.

JAPANESE - Albacore Ponzu (Yanako - University City)

A popular BYOB spot, Yanako uses traditional techniques and fresh ingredients to deliver sushi and other refined Japanese fare. The restaurant is authentic and inviting, featuring expansive skylights, a wood-paneled atrium and interior courtyard.

ISRAELI - Grilled Haloumi (Zahav - Society Hill)

Zahav brings modern Israeli flavors and culinary techniques to Philadelphia. The casual restaurant is home to an ever-changing, globally-inspired small plates menu and an award-winning cocktail list. Meant to evoke the hidden courtyards of Jerusalem, the space is decorated with gold limestone floors and walls, hand-carved tables and soaring ceilings.

Happy dining,
Lisa Ganz, Reserve Philadelphia
