The Continental

138 Market St.
Philadelphia , PA , United States http://www.continentalmartinibar.com/
(215) 923-6069

At this restored 1960's stainless-steel-clad diner in the Old City, patrons sit in vintage vinyl booths under lamps fashioned like cocktail olives, or on the street-side patio. While the bar menu revives and reinvents old-fashioned drinks—like the house vodka martini garnished with a lemon-stuffed olive—the food menu is a mash-up of global cuisines. The Continental’s Szechuan fried potatoes come with a hot Chinese mustard, while shrimp, mild Chihuahua cheese, and salsa verde top the Mexican-style pizza. For other trendy comfort dishes, try the Healthy Elvis—a multigrain sandwich combining carmelized banana, peanut butter, and Nutella.
