Our City Guides is from the point of view of the people we interview. A restaurant cannot be listed in our guides unless it is recommended by one of the tastemakers we’ve featured. We don’t want you to see the restaurant world through our eyes, but rather through the eyes of your favorite tastemakers in every industry. Why us? Why not them?


Johnny Brenda’s

Recommended by: Marc Vetri (Chef/Owner, Vetri Ristorante)

This Fishtown bar and music venue is a proponent of the locavore movement, offering local beers and a menu championing seasonal and local ingredients.  The space was built in the style of historical social halls, with decor reminiscent of early twentieth century theaters. The unexpected, modern balcony gives the lively bar a fun, trendy vibe.
