Maybe if you were in, like, a coma or something for the past couple years, you might’ve snoozed on the fact that the art museum neighborhood — Fairmount, if you must — has seen a huge uptick in new, reputable restaurants. In today’s Inky Drew Lazor breaks down the neighborhood’s rise as a proper restaurant row, crediting everything from La Calaca Feliz and BlueCat to Alla Spina and Route 6 for bringing those blocks up. Sadly, in a companion piece, Inky critic Craig Laban reminds us all that dining options at the museums themselves still have a ways to go. [Inquirer]
