Good Food, Neighborhood Spot
- Even the liquor is good for you -- or at least for the planet. Order an organic gin martini, extra dirty. Forty-five worldly wines by the glass (not necessarily organic) make for fun sampling, too.

Good to Know
- Fare’s across-the-street neighbor is Eastern State Penitentiary, a major draw for haunted tours come Halloween. In October, plan for extra parking challenges.
