My love note: Morgan’s Pier is the perfect new summer bar in Philadelphia. The setting is perfect with the fresh river breeze and view of the soaring Ben Franklin Bridge, far enough from the hustle of the city to feel like you’re on a mini vacation; the setup is perfect with casual picnic benches and umbrellas on a boardwalk-like deck; the drinks are perfect, with a huge local craft beer list and really tasty cocktails made from scratch; the food is beyond perfect, from pro David Katz of Meme – who else would dream up “snack bacon,” caramelized bacon you chew on like jerky? One of my favorite things about Philly is that it’s a city of neighborhoods, and each feels so different. Morgan’s Pier turns Penn’s Landing into a neighborhood unto itself, one that I kind of never want to leave…
