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.

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.

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.

    This is truly a dream school! They are teaching my son more than I could have imagined. His spiritual, academic, and physical education are all important and they give him a better education than I could have ever hoping for in a public or charter school. They treat a child like family and show them love and respect with everything they do. I'm so grateful to have a safe and loving place for my son to learn and grow.
