Whether you’re dining solo at the bar, sitting with a date outside on Christian Street, or cozied up in a leather banquette with a few friends, you’re at this buzzy Italian Market spot for anything from the charcoal grill. Alice occupies a storied neighborhood space, and the new American menu focuses on seasonal cuisine. While the Colorado rack of lamb and chargrilled naan are delicious, the service is about as choppy as the WiFi at PHL. Be prepared: it may take 15 minutes to get your Campari-laced King Vidi, or several tries to get the crispy soft-shell crab with black garlic sauce. Get the housemade toffee ice cream to soothe your worn patience, and it'll all be worth it.
