The lowdown

There can be a precious, slightly overstudied quality to the dinner at this Village outpost of Eli Kulp’s famous Philly restaurant, but the breakfast and lunch services are well worth your time. Pay special attention to the stoutly named breakfast sandwiches (the mushroom-rich “Forager,” the “Bodega” made with sausage and melted cheddar on a fresh biscuit), and to the lunchtime sandwiches too (the turkey with green goddess dressing), which taste like they’ve beamed in from some ethereal gourmet lumberjack camp in the sky. If you’re in the mood for a quick snack, the in-house bakery produces all sorts of filling delicacies (try the “Red Eye” danish, topped with a twirl of Benton’s ham if it’s available), which you can pick up most hours of the day and night.
