The March Hit List, Lunch Edition: Vista Peru, Pizzeria Vetri, Macona BBQ, and More

By

Between breakfast being considered the most important meal of the day and dinner being the meal we spend hours planning and preparing, lunch gets neglected. And the mighty midday meal deserves attention. So don’t let it be an afterthought, especially right now, when it also can help your favorite restaurants stick around.

For this month’s Philadelphia Hit List, we explore lunch — including a Peruvian spot with a whole menu of ceviches, a sandwich shop that builds worlds of flavor between two slices of bread, and a seafood restaurant with take-home kits stocked with gratuitous quantities of lobster. Maybe after indulging in these spots you’ll give the middle child of meals the respect it’s long been due.
