    Things to do: Where to watch the World Cup - June 14 - July 15, 2018
    Despite the stubborn, oft-repeated contention that Americans would never embrace soccer as the rest of the world has, American soccer fandom is on the up-and-up. And even the most casual lover of soccer - sorry, football - can get excited about the World Cup, the most widely viewed sporting event in the world (yes, even bigger than the Olympics).

Philly dining with view | Let's Eat

One of my new go-to KAs is the cardamom-sugared lovely at Suraya (1528 Frankford Ave.), the gorgeous Lebanese café-market, bakery, and restaurant in Fishtown, which right now is making some of the city’s most beautiful pastries — French, but with a Levantine twist.

Thursday, June 14, is the projected opening of a second location for this nutrition-forward bowl specialist at 1700 Market St. It will be open from breakfast through dinner weekdays.

Coffee shop comes to the Bok Building from Adam Gery, a longtime manager and barista at Last Drop Coffeehouse, and architect Whitney Joslin. Its entrance is at 821 Dudley St.

My top pick is still Hungry Pigeon (743 S. Fourth St.) in Queen Village where Pat O’Malley, who used to run the pastry production for...

ICI Macarons & Café (230 Arch St.) in Old City is a hidden gem — they do fine croissants, as well as some excellent KAs.

The Kettle Black (631 N. Second St.) in Northern Liberties makes its standard croissants with Amish butter and has an airy vegan version that has seriously whirling layers inside. The French-owned J’Aime in the Gayborhood (212 S. 12th St.) is also legit.

    Philly's dining-with-a-view scene will be expanding by two in coming weeks. I rode the elevators for the details. Also this week, I share word of a pan-Asian standout in Chinatown, return to a Rittenhouse favorite, and tip you to what might be Philly's most decorated burger. Craig LaBan, meanwhile, shares his favorite croissants.

    Whither the proposed Fishtown hotel now that its variance has lapsed?
    In the much-discussed -- and much-derided -- Forbes article christening Fishtown the "hottest new neighborhood in America," developer Roland Kassis was a star character. The author rode with Kassis in his Range Rover, where he described how Frankford Avenue had grown over the last several years and hinted at a bigger change to come in a major hotel project he was going to finish.
