Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room



A pioneer in Old City’s dining and cocktail scene, the original Continental arrived with the revival of the martini and the cosmopolitan, bringing cheesesteak eggrolls, lobster mac and cheese, fried calamari and Thai chicken lettuce wraps with it. The giant olive-topped restaubar serves brunch, lunch and dinner.
