PHILADELPHIA (HOODLINE) — Want to check out the newest restaurant additions to Philadelphia? From a colonial cookery to a rooftop burger bar, read on to see the newest spots to open their doors.


1. Elwood


Elwood is a New American spot that recently opened at 1007 Frankford Ave. in Fishtown.

According to the restaurant’s website, “Elwood’s menu draws from local history. Chef Adam Diltz has looked to the Colonial, Federal and Victorian eras of the Philadelphia region for inspiration.” Expect rustic dishes that are both traditional and off-beat, such as catfish and waffles, turtle soup, ham pot pie and whole rabbit. Don’t forget the wine — Elwood is BYOB.

2. Ambrosia


Ambrosia is an Italian spot that recently opened at 231 S. 24th St. in Rittenhouse.

This BYOB serves fine Italian favorites like beef carpaccio, burrata, chicken milanese and homemade pasta. (See the full menu here.)
