Now open at 2201 Penrose Ave., Suite 3 in Packer Park is Kasumi Sushi, a Japanese spot and sushi bar.
On the menu, you'll find soups, salads and appetizers, like edamame and gyoza. In addition to a wide variety of sushi rolls, featured dishes include teriyaki, tempura, fried rice and noodles.
Yelper F. S. left this enthusiastic review: "Man, what a little gem of a place! The prices are very reasonable, and the service was excellent. We had the sushi and sashimi combo. Yummy. The fish was generously sized and tasted fresh."
Marino Bros. Cheesesteaks
An Old City newcomer, Marino Bros. Cheesesteaks is a spot to score cheesesteaks and more located in The Bourse Marketplace at 111 S. Independence Mall East.
Try The Works sandwich with mushrooms, roasted peppers and onions. Chicken cheesesteaks are also available.
