The August Hit List: Friday Saturday Sunday, Cheu Fishtown, and More


Here’s a tip: August is the best time to be in Philadelphia. While everyone’s down the shore, weekend resys are easier to snag. Pay close attention to your Notify list — you’re going to want to bring friends.

You won’t go wrong with noodles and ramen at Cheu Fishtown, American and Italian favorites at Patchwork, or savory Middle Eastern dinners at Twenty Manning. For those special occasions, immediately book a resy for a luxurious tasting menu dinner at Friday Saturday Sunday, this year’s Beard Awards winner for Outstanding Restaurant, and plan on staying overnight for poolside meals at Heirloom at The St. Laurent in Asbury Park. And if you’re headed out of town, pick up Southern-inspired platters at Love & Honey Fried Chicken in NoLibs or North by Texas barbecue in Chestnut Hill, perfect to fuel up for a summer road trip.
