The Ardmore whiskey bar and restaurant earned three out of four bells. The popular establishment has evolved into a casually stylish space where you can enjoy well-crafted cocktails and one of the best spirit collections available.
However, it is the food that continuously exceeds expectations. Chef and co-owner Biff Gottehrer has put his varied experience in the industry to good use by offering diners some boldly updated comforts such as the region’s best burger and Caesar dressing-filled croutons.
Meanwhile Keep, the Jenkintown BYOB received two bells. It is run by Chef Mike Jenkins and Melody Lauletta, a talented duo with experience at some of the area’s most notable restaurateurs.
Their partnership has resulted in a project that radiates refined upscale ambitions, warm hospitality, and – unusually for the suburbs – adventurous flavors.
Its wide-ranging menu features everything from shrimp pelmeni dumplings to spicy brisket with rye spaetzle.
