Living in Manayunk
Just minutes from Center City, Manayunk is more than a half-mile long, with more than 65 shops and galleries and scores of restaurants.
The heart and soul of the community is Main Street, a mercifully level thoroughfare bustling with dozens of restaurants, owner-operated boutiques, bars and galleries.
Daytime activities give way to nighttime action as foodies and revelers hit the streets, scoping out new menu additions at restaurants, jockeying for views at the riverside clubs, catching up-and-coming local musicians or dancing to a DJ.
As a popular spot for chefs to spread their culinary wings and with at least 50 dining spots, almost every craving can be satisfied.
Sushi? There's Yanako or long-time favorite Hikaru. Mexican? Try Taqueria Feliz or Cactus Cantina. Indian, Thai, New Orleans or a big juicy burger? They're all here. Jake's and Cooper's Wine Bar tunrs out high-quality fare that has kept folks coming back for more than 25 years.
