The heart of South Philadelphia
One of the few diagonal streets cutting through Philadelphia’s grid design, Passyunk Avenue — and the surrounding neighborhood — has always stood out from the crowd.
The highly walkable thoroughfare that gives East Passyunk (pronounced “Pashyunk” by locals) its name is lined with indie boutiques, bars and cafes. It’s home to traditional red gravy Italian restaurants, world-famous cheesesteak spots and highly acclaimed eateries that have earned it a spot on Food and Wine’s list of 10 Best Foodie Streets in America.
Straying just off Passyunk Avenue reveals even more exciting finds that highlight the neighborhood’s blend of old-school charm and influx of dynamic new energy.
