When lunchtime rolls around and all you’ve packed is some sad lettuce, the best thing to do is order out!
In honor of all the great Conshohocken restaurants we’ve enjoyed over the years, here are some of our team’s top picks:
Josh – Izenberg’s
A solid Jewish deli is a staple of any major town or city. Even though Izenberg’s has been in the area for quite some time, I felt that it was missing the appropriate space to truly feel like other authentic Kosher-Style Delis in the surrounding areas. Well now they have it. The new location at 401 Fayette is a perfect fit for this style of restaurant. The menu selection is solid, the food tastes great, the staff is friendly, and the overall atmosphere feels right at home. In addition, their catering menu is what you’d expect of a deli – simple, yet extensive in selection, perfect for any size party. Safe to say, we will be coming back for more!
Audrey – SNAP Pizza
This build-your-own pizza spot makes it super easy to choose your favorite meats, cheeses, and veggies – fresh toppings with enough variety to satisfy all pizza-loving personalities – on a touchscreen that sends your order behind the counter. There, a friendly associate assembles the pizza with a generous hand and sends it back to you on a pizza stone-like tray. So streamlined! If you don’t feel like picking your own toppings, you can choose from a short-and-sweet menu of pre-designed pizzas, as well as creative salads and grain bowls. I’m partial to the “Farmers Market” pizza and its airy dollops of ricotta cheese.
Ryan – Bar Lucca
If you’re in the mood for fine dining and fancy pizza, Bar Lucca is the spot to go! Its small, cozy atmosphere is exactly why I keep coming back, not to mention its full bar and Italian specialities. My favorite items are the pizza and the pasta, while my wife loves the salads.
Ross – Bar Lucca, Too
Bar Lucca is one of the restaurants in Conshy that I frequent. The flatbread pizza options are spectacular, with more exciting meats than grilled chicken and pepperoni. The crust reminds me of the Indian bread, naan. It’s especially fun watching the chefs preparing your meal in the kitchen with the restaurant’s open layout. The drinks, service, and ambiance are consistent and keep me coming back. If you’re looking for authentic Italian dining, outdoor seating, and an excellent happy hour, be sure to stop by Bar Lucca.
Nina – Fayette Street Grille
Oh, Fayette Street Grille. You had me at chili aioli. And don’t even get me started on the plethora of other toppings I can choose from for my go-to lunch order: a grilled chicken sandwich with piping hot fries.
Whether it’s take-out to bring back to the office, or dining in your classy, yet casual, establishment, I’m never disappointed. (Tip: ask for extra chili aioli on the side for your fries… you can thank me later.)
Emily – Chiangmai Thai Cuisine
Congratulations, reader, you’ve stumbled upon the best lunch special in Conshy: an appetizer plus entree for the insanely reasonable price of $9.99.
Yep, all the Tom Yum and Pad Thai you want for only ten bucks. There’s just one catch: this special is advertised absolutely nowhere and in fact, the lunch menu lists completely different pricing. Like a modern day, curry-themed speakeasy, the only way to get this special is to ask for it over the phone (can I order the ten dollar lunch special please?), wait for verbal confirmation, and then proceed to give them the app & entree combo you desire. Remember to keep the spice levels down too, if you’re fond of your taste buds.
Kerry – El Limon
*dreamy eyes* It was love at first burrito.
This low-key restaurant serves fresh, flavorful, flippin’ delicious Mexican cuisine. My favorite dish? The chicken tinga enchiladas with tomatillo sauce and a side of rice and beans. Experience the wonder of authentic, inexpensive Mexican food, and ignore your boss’s bathroom jokes.
This list is not comprehensive! We love a whole lot of Conshy cuisine. Many thanks to all of the restaurants that keep our team full and happy.
