Bar Bombon
133 S. 18th St., 3-6 p.m. weekdays.

Nicole Marquis' Puerto Rican heritage shines in her bustling corner bar-restaurant near Rittenhouse Square, a few doors from her original eatery, the casual HipCityVeg. Bar Bombon is similarly plant-based (aka vegan), and the 3 p.m. start may inspire you to knock off early from work for $5 margs, mojitos, wines, even its "citywide" (Tecate and a shot). Bites include guac and chips ($7), $4 empanadas, and my fave — a $4.50 Buffalo cauliflower taco.
