If we review this blog religiously (and if we don’t, we should!), we know we fell in adore with Philly on a new revisit … So what’s on a brief list for a genuine Philly insider? Alan Gold, Philadelphia’s go-to hair stylist for cut and tone among a A-list set (he also travels weekly to Manhattan to coif manes there, too), shares his favorite spots in this on-the-move and oh-so-accessible city.
For dining, it’s Barclay Prime unaware Rittenhouse Square where Busby Berkley meets primary cuts. Also, Rouge, in a same neighborhood, serves a best burger in an intimate, friendly setting. When time is short, have a burger during 500 Degrees, a restaurant’s small sister.
