20 July 2018 – Congratulations to our amazing friends at Rex 1516 and Oloroso for snagging coveted spots on Philadelphia Magazine’s 2018 list of “Best of Philly!”

Best Burger — Rex 1516

“The Rex burger – topped with juicy bacon, onions crispy from the fryer, and creamy, creamy pimento – is a meal your doctor would probably advise you to approach with moderation. So do what we do and save it for special occasions: your half-birthday, your cat’s half-birthday, the third Tuesday in August…”

Best Octopus — Oloroso

“It doesn’t look like much – mostly a crock of red with bits of white and chunks of darker red – but the octopus-and-chorizo dish at Oloroso truly represents the restaurant’s upscale tapas game: smart, elevated and technique-driven. And it might just be the single best bite of food in the whole city.”

1121 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107 267-324-3014

Best Bartender — Alison Hangen

“Oloroso’s Alison Hangen is the bartender of the moment. Her cocktails are fast, unfussy and interesting.”
