Dive Into Devon Seafood

For a romantic evening out, a dinner at Devon Seafood on Rittenhouse Square will not disappoint. Known for top-notch seafood offerings as well as the luxurious interior, Devon Seafood is a feast for both the belly and the eyes. Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by an impressive bar, dark wood booths, and soaring tiled ceilings. Exuding an upscale 1940s vibe, you’ll feel right at home sipping your well-mixed $6.50 happy hour martini here.

For your meal, diners recommend the shrimp enchiladas, ahi tuna sushi rolls, as well as the crab cakes. For starters, the calamari is a favorite, and patrons just adore the fluffy, homemade buttermilk biscuits. If you’re a fan of fish, you’ll find some of the very best here. Their market fresh daily offerings include items such as swordfish, mahi-mahi, whole bronzini, seared halibut, and much, much more. If seafood isn’t your thing, you’ll also find extensive “land” offerings, such as center cut filet mignon and blackened chicken penne pasta. Covering all bases, Devon has several vegetarian and gluten-free offerings, and there is a robust wine list that pairs well with all the food on offer.

Devon serves both lunch and dinner daily, and is open Sunday-Tuesday 11am-10pm, Wednesday-Thursday 11am-11pm, and Friday-Saturday 11am-12am. Brunch is served from 11am-2pm on Sundays only. And, if you’re looking for a deal, stop by during happy hour. Devon offers drink specials Monday-Friday from 5-7pm, and appetizer specials Sunday-Friday 5-7pm and again from 9-11pm. Happy hour is offered at the bar only.

Shake Shack Opens on 20th and Sansom!

If you walked by 20th and Sansom Street in Center City anytime in the past few months, you probably noticed a striking vertical garden on the corner opposite Capo Giro. Philadelphians in the know remembered that Shake Shack — restaurateur Danny Meyer's burger joint — was slated to open in the spring of 2012.

Well, it's spring and it's here: Philly's very own Shake Shack officially opened at 20th and Sansom yesterday, June 6th. The lines at this hotly anticipated new addition to Philly's dining scene were predictably long yet surprisingly efficient, helping Shake Shack fans quickly get a taste of the restaurant's burgers, floats, shakes, fries, and frozen custards.

Don't know Shake Shack? Originally opened in New York City in 2004, the 14-restaurant chain now spans as far as Dubai, bringing its special brand of burgers and shakes to appreciative diners. The new Philadelphia Shake Shake brings delicious comfort food within walking distance of apartments in Rittenhouse Square, Fitler Square, and Fairmount. It's just one more great reason for renters to call Philadelphia home!

1500 Locust Apartments: A Blissful Life in Rittenhouse Square

 

Forgive us, but this really is living the dream.

First, the basics: at 1500 Locust, Rittenhouse Square belongs to you. Parc and Devon are steps away. Boyd’s is around the corner. You can wake up late on Sunday morning and stroll across to Barnes & Noble. Get a coffee, pick up a newspaper … then what? Find a bench outside, play some chess? Browse in Anthropologie?

Maybe. But maybe not. You might just sit back, smile at the dogs and babies, and watch the world roll by. Because you live here. This is all yours.

And if all you can’t figure out what to do, well, just go upstairs and look down on it all. When you rent an apartment at 1500 Locust, you have exclusive access to the Panorama Club, a rooftop oasis of outdoor cabanas and an Olympic-sized indoor pool. At night, you can enjoy the skyline without ever leaving the building.

Fresh from refurbishment, everything is brand-new here; stainless steel kitchens, granite countertops, and clean, minimalist lines.

1500 Locust Apartments offers studio, one, two, and three bedroom homes. Studios start at $1,450 and three-bedroom apartments start at $4,195.
