Style: Caterers Mitch and Jennifer Prensky helped lead the way for Philly’s small-plate movement at this stylish bilevel space on South Street in 2008. They’ve upsized to more traditional portions since then, but the commitment to contemporary cooking using scratch ingredients – from the bread to the hot dog - remains among the city’s most inventive and well-executed. Brunch, in particular, has become a big draw, from the red velvet waffles and killer chilaquiles, to the house-made Supper dog and pickled veggies made from produce grown at Blue Elephant farm, the organic farm in Newtown Square where Prensky has partnered grows and harvests many of his ingredients. No wonder, Supper still tastes so seasonal and fresh.
