The new Yards taproom has lines up to an hour long

Made with thigh meat that’s slow-baked in a confit, then battered and fried to a golden crisp before being gilded with buttermilk ranch, it’s been the menu’s top seller during the month the venue at Fifth and Spring Garden has been open, according to opening chef Jim Burke.

    You're going to want the fried chicken sandwich at the new Yards Brewing taproom. Made with thigh meat that's slow-baked in a confit, then battered and fried to a golden crisp before being gilded with buttermilk ranch, it's been the menu's top seller during the month the venue at Fifth and Spring Garden has been open, according to opening chef Jim Burke.

A year-round brunch favorite at this longtime classic on 21st and Sansom are the housemade potato pancakes. Get ‘em on their own in a trio with sour cream, applesauce and raspberry preserves ($9) or go nuts by using them as the base for eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and hollandaise ($15).

    Where to eat latkes in and around Center City
    You can almost never go wrong with fried potatoes. French fries, home fries, hash browns, tots, potato chips - every variation is good. But there's something about the Jewish potato pancake traditionally enjoyed during the Festival of Lights that's extra satisfying.

We have reached our goal of 300 for the food drive. Let's concentrate on our toy donations now. Thanks for helping us out. All donated items (even the toys) will go to Feast of Justice. http://www.feastofjustice.org/

    Feast Of Justice
    Poverty doesn't distinguish between young and old, it doesn't recognize race or religion, male or female, or even working or unemployed. It is indiscriminate and spreading. The one piece that is held in common is that the people that Feast of Justice serves are our neighbors, our community, and the people we meet on the block.
