Corrado's Picks


227 South 18th Street
Philadelphia, PA

Just a few blocks from the Academy of Music, and close to the Curtis Institute, Parc is one of Corrado's top picks for breakfast, brunch, or lunch, “It’s very convenient, but also has very good energy.”

Gran Caffè L'Aquila

1716 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA

Another favorite lunch spot near the Academy of Music, Gran Caffè L'Aquila has a number of good dishes, Corrado said, as well as “very good coffee and very good gelato."


306 Market Street
Philadelphia, PA

For dinner, Corrado recomments Fork, located in Old City. Owner Ellen Yin is "a very kind person and she loves Italy," Corrado says. "Every time I go there I am very happy to see her and I love to hear about her travels to Italy!"

Jean Georges

1 N. 19th Street
Philadelphia, PA

On the 59th floor of the Four Seasons Hotel in Center City, the view can't be beat.

Talula’s Garden

210 West Washington Square
Philadelphia, PA

This farm-to-table restaurant is a favorite for dinner, in part for its convenient location, Corrado says. "The food is very good and it is also close to where I live!"
