A new addition to Rittenhouse, Koreana is a fast-casual Korean fusion spot that's located at 37 S. 19th St. As well as offering its signature bibimbap and lunch specials in-house, the eatery provides take-out, delivery and catering.

Tomo Sushi & Ramen is a sushi bar offering ramen and more that recently opened at 228 Arch St. in the Old City. On the menu, look for the sashimi deluxe or the vegan straw-veggie roll topped with strawberries.

The Wander Inn is a bar that recently opened its doors at 2500 S. Third St. in Whitman. While a rotating selection of craft beers on draught and ciders is the focus, the bar also serves brunch on the weekends.

Rittenhouse The PokeSpot is now located at 1804 Chestnut St. Healthy base options, like zucchini noodles and cauliflower rice, combined with unlimited veggie toppings, set this poke place apart from its competitors.

Have you noticed that the outdoor seating plaza outside Malelani Cafe Mt. Airy has been torn up this week? That's actually a good thing - it's the fourth of six pocket parks coming together on Germantown Avenue courtesy of the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District. You may have noticed the improvements on the corner of Germantown & Sedgwick outside the Mt. Airy Playground, and you've probably seen the new landscaping and Little Free Library outside of Fino's on the corner of Carpenter Lane. On Tuesday, come out to the original - Trolley Car Park, between the SEPTA brake yard and Mermaid Lounge - for a reception and fundraiser for the pocket parks to learn more. There's no obligation to donate, but donations help to add amenities like benches, tables, and the like.

    Go Mt. Airy

Inga Saffron's story last month outlined a lot of the development changing the landscape of Mt. Airy. One project not covered was the one proposed for the corner of Cresheim Road and Sedgwick Street. Pictured here, an investor who bought 7000 & 7002 Cresheim would have torn down two intact, recently-inhabited houses on the end of a full-block row of two-story rowhomes and replaced them with a three-story, eight-unit apartment building. Several years ago, unbeknownst to its residents, that block's zoning was changed from single-family residential to multi-family RM-1, so this proposal was allowed BY RIGHT. Thanks to an appeal from Weatham Town Watch, on the grounds that the proposal did not conform with the setbacks of the neighboring houses, the permit was revoked. This entire process underscores the importance of appropriate zoning and planning. And hey, whattaya know, the Philadelphia City Planning Commission has been studying our area and will release its Upper Northwest District Plan, encompassing Mt. Airy, Germantown, and Chestnut Hill, NEXT MONDAY, June 18th, at Lovett Library & Park. As the final one of 18 districts in the City's 2035 Comprehensive Plan, this is a big deal. The Commission will have two sessions to choose from: 3:30pm and 6pm. (They're the same session, just two times to choose from.) Plan to be there, then stick around for our Music Monday with Danie Jackson, the Ramble Pizza food truck, and beer tastings from Attic Brewing Company.
