Food

School is back in session, and with thousands of students roosting in and around Philly, pizza is going to be more in demand as a form of sustenance. Which is why we paid a visit to Mama Palma’s, 2229 Spruce St., a neighborhood favorite with more than 20 years of experience in satisfying Philly’s hunger for the thin-crusted delight.

With the Summer Olympics in Rio still fresh in our minds, we figured it was a good time to get exposed to some Brazilian influences.

No, we’re not packing our bags and warming up our passports — we can afford that. We’re just going out to eat.

New to Philadelphia, the recently opened Beefsteak, 3417 Spruce St., is a deliciously cruel tease.

The latest addition to the veggie-centric fast-casual dining chain has no “beef” or “steaks” on the menu and it is buried in the lower levels of Houston Hall’s food court on the University of Pennsylvania campus, with no signs on the outside to lead anyone who doesn’t already know about it to.

Butcher shop and now full-service restaurant Kensington Quarters is bringing locally sourced and sustainable seasonal fare to the area, but has more tricks up its culinary sleeve than just meat.

New on the Manayank scene, Maya.J is the product of Chef Craig Wilson’s vision of locally sourced and sustainable farm-to-table ingredients — which he uses to make an interesting range of internationally themed small plates.
