Marigold Kitchen is located inside a nondescript Victorian townhouse in West Philly, and everything they do here is different. The food is vaguely Nordic (for now), but the best way to describe it is “experimental.” They’re always changing up the tasting menus and putting together gorgeous dishes that mix a ton of seemingly random ingredients, but are all excellent for the most part. And, if nothing else, you’ll have one of the most interesting meals in Philly when you come here.
