Check out Philadelphia Magazine's review of Vista Peru, one of Old City's new restaurants! 🍽️

    Playing Favorites: Vista Peru Reviewed
    There are people out there who love Peruvian food, and there are people who've never tried it. No one falls in between. Vista Peru is a potato lover's paradise. All Peruvian restaurants are, really. They're places where the potato is taken in strange new directions - used as filling, like bread, as a center-plate star - and respected as the miraculous tuber it is.

A Factory Reset in Old City for $3.3M

115 N. Orianna St., #2, Philadelphia, Pa. 19106 | Photos: Devin Campbell via Alon Seltzer, BHHS Fox & Roach Realtors

    A Factory Reset in Old City for $3.3M
    The top floor of a onetime cigar box factory has been transformed into an artfully designed showcase that blends New York sophistication with Old City attitude. If there is any part of Philadelphia that can be said to resemble New York - and I'm sure I'm going to get flak for suggesting that such a thing exists - it's Old City, the place where Philadelphia began.

Painted Bride says farewell to iconic building in Old City

The 49th anniversary party on Saturday night, at Race and 3rd streets, will feature live music, drinking and dancing, original murals, food, and a silent auction to raise funds for the organization.

    Painted Bride says farewell to iconic building in Old City
    This weekend, the Painted Bride will hold its 49th anniversary party, and it's likely to be the organization's last hurrah in Old City. The Painted Bride has been a cornerstone of the Philadelphia culture scene for almost a half-century, starting in a scrappy storefront on South Street and then in the 1980s, moving into a former elevator factory building in Old City.
