CravePhilly is a video series highlighting local cookbook author Hope Cohen's favorite food finds (old & new) in the Philadelphia area.

a.kitchen and a.bar, two exciting restaurants at Rittenhouse Square in the heart of Center City, showcase the modern, compelling cuisine of Chef Eli Kulp and his team, along with one of the country's most innovative wine and spirits programs.

a.kitchen's smaller sibling, a.bar (1737 Walnut St.), is a 42-seat raw bar located directly on the bustling corner of 18th and Walnut Streets with great views of the park and city life.

Launched in July 2013, a.bar features a superb selection of traditional seafood, snacks, salads, sandwiches and globally inspired crudo, as well as a range of intriguing house cocktails and wines that harmonize with their seafood dishes.
