The Passyunk neighborhood has plenty of fancy sit-down restaurants to lure diners and visitors out of their homes and off the streets, but the recently opened Redcrest Fried Chicken is poised to win the hearts and minds of the casual grab-and-go crowd.

The call of brunch lured us back to the bright and elegant confines of Aqimero, 10 Avenue of the Arts, on the calming upscale ground floor of the Ritz Carlton. And we couldn’t think of a better reason to venture downtown on a weekend morning.

With a modern-rustic décor, locally sourced menu, urban garden and stage for live music (usually low-key, roots-oriented, jazzy, bluesy outfits), it gets no hipper or hipster when it comes to Northern Liberties eateries than this. And it has as much talent in the kitchen as it does onstage.
