Known for small plates and a great chef, Stateside received Philly Magazine’s #1 spot in a restaurant review so we made reservations weeks in advance. This visit was on a Saturday night, not a Friday, so it was not an official “Bucket List” night. However it was on the original bucket list and we decided to include it.

Where In The World Is Pappy Van Winkle?

We arrived early in order to experience the bar, but it turned out that the place was so small that the tables were IN the bar. We visited with Ross and Vicki, and Ross asked the bartender for something special. They served Pappy Van Winkle. He ordered two “2 finger” (double) Pappy Van Winkles for the guys and two Cosmos for the ladies. Each shot of Pappy is $30 because it is a very rare find. Graciously Ross picked up the bar tab because the bill for drinks alone was $140!

We created a meal of the delicious small plates, which included Duck sausage, created by famous chef George Sabatino. The guys had another round of Pappy and the girls enjoyed more cosmopolitans and sweet desserts.
