Pizza Brain

Part-slice shop, part-history lesson, Pizza Brain claims to be the world’s first pizza museum. And as much as we appreciate pizza culture, we really come to this Fishtown spot for the thin crust and their not-too-sweet red sauce. They top the pies with fresh herbs and nice cheeses (think fontina, aged provolone, and gruyere), and if you’re coming in for a slice, one might be enough (they’re big).

Pizza Brain is a BYOB, which makes it a great way to start a casual date night or fuel up before hitting the bars along Frankford. And if you’re looking for something sweet afterwards, they’re connected to Little Baby’s Ice Cream. They’ll also toss a scoop on a cheese slice for you if you want to try the infamous Frankford Taco. Personally, we prefer keeping the two separate, but hey, you do you.

Suraya is a Lebanese spot in Fishtown that’s great for a date, brunch, or a big group dinner. Honestly, it’s great for everything.
