The July Hit List: La Chinesca, Cry Baby Pasta, Terron Kitchen, and More


After more than a year of uncertainty, Philadelphia has lifted COVID restrictions, meaning restaurants are back at full capacity. Though things are looking almost normal again, there is still a period of adjustment. Remember, our friends in hospitality have had a lot to deal with over the past 15 months. They’ve rolled with the punches, and always have made serving the community safely a priority. So as restaurants  adjust to these (happier) changes, be patient, be kind, and tip generously.

This month, we’re out and about — exploring the Chinatowns of Baja California at La Chinesca, getting our summertime crab and pasta fix at Cry Baby Pasta, and enjoying the richness of vegan mac ‘n’ cheese at Terron Kitchen. Here’s a Hit List for what’s sure to be a memorable July.
