Northern Liberties is one of the up-and-coming neighborhoods in Philadelphia. There are certainly still some ugly spots, but it is quickly becoming trendier. And there are some good restaurants.
I visited one of them tonight – Bar Ferdinand. The name of the game there is Tapas – small, appetizer-sized spanish dishes. They also serve paella, but tapas are their specialty. Makes for a great happy hour spot or for dinner, if you’re willing to make one out of tapas. A very good meal and, compared to some of the other nice restaurants in Philly, a fair price.
