We thought we’d stumbled into Best Buy when we walked into The Fin and saw the 25-foot widescreen TV above the bar. But the Fishtown spot is not just a place that has a screen fit for an NBA 2K player’s dream—the dining space has all the makings of a high-end steakhouse, including a raw bar.

When you’re here, either for a full dinner or just to watch a game, make sure to get an order of the shrimp and grits. It’s a shareable starter that we’d come here to eat solo just so we didn’t have to divvy it up, and what we like most about it is the creaminess from the mix of parmesan, gouda, and cheddar. But when we’re feeling friendly enough to invite a group for some late-night (they close at 2am) surf and turf charcuterie or a shrimp boil, there are plenty of cocktails made from house-pressed juices and bottles of wine to pair with it all.
