Philly has its fair share of restaurants in big, historic buildings, but most of them are white-tablecloth spots filled with people who look like characters from Clue. Porta is different. It’s the third location of an Asbury Park pizza shop and just like the first two, it’s fun. The walls of what used to be a furniture store are covered in graffiti, and the huge space is perfect for you to invite all of your friends, and then for them to invite all of their friends. After dinner, they even set up a dance floor, so you don’t have to split two Ubers six ways to get to a crowded bar in Fishtown.
