Northern Liberties is full of restaurants, but those restaurants are typically full of people. Las Cazuelas, at the northernmost tip of the neighborhood, is just far away from the main drag to offer hope. Whether it’s a double date or your team from work deciding it was time to “bond,” this place has you covered with a big back room and lots of taco and enchilada options. Plus, it’s BYO-tequila, which makes everything more fun.
