The June Hit List: Charley Dove, Leaf, Lucha Cartel, Café La Maude, and More


June always brings a new energy to Philadelphia, and with restrictions easing across the region, there’s even more palpable excitement brewing among restaurants and diners.

This month, we’re enjoying poached crawfish tails and gulf shrimp down by the Delaware River at Morgan’s Pier, we’re escaping to the burbs for all-vegan eats at Leaf in Haddonfield, and we’re soaking up eternal happy hour at Lucha Cartel in Old City. It’s all part of a summer to celebrate the return of dining — and we’re ready for it, starting with our June Hit List.
