This seafood-focused Mediterranean BYOB is just down the street from the Betsy Ross House. Even though it only has a handful of wooden tables, the cozy dining room is usually full of small groups of friends, families, and a few couples hanging out. Outside of chatty dining space that will make you feel like you’re at a dinner party, they have menu options that go great with your favorite bottle of red or white. You'll want a few small plates, like octopus served with a peppery romesco sauce or mussels swimming in a limoncello pesto, but don't ignore the shareable dishes—all of it, from the seafood-loaded to the citrusy branzino, is fantastic.
