Heading into this summer, Yelp Philly's community manager Michelle C. and company coordinated another Yelp Elite Event - this time at Jon's Bar & Grille.
Located in a prime spot on South Street, the rooftop deck offers a great space to watch all the craziness transpire below.
Jon's Bar & Grille was gracious enough to have an open bar at said rooftop, replete with beer, wine, and house-made sangria.
The sangria was definitely the best drink of the night, a bit cumbersome with some of the whole fruit, but the wine itself went down smooth and packed some punch at the end.
Add to this a variety of bites on offer? You're bound to have a good time.
Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos
Cilantro, red onions
There was an abundant amount of well-cooked fish within a crisped tortilla wrap, however the sauce overpowered the flavors a bit.
Marinated chicken, cheddar, red onion
The panini fared much better, with moist grilled chicken within and some sharp cheddar providing the balance for the red onion. Overall, the bite was a bit dry, but some mesquite BBQ aioli was provided and provided the percent accent to this sandwich.
The cheeseburger sliders seemed pretty plain, but in truth, they were moist, tender, and well cooked to a respectable medium.
Chicken Cheesesteak Wrap
The chicken cheesesteak was decent, but a bit bland overall.
Needed a bit of that BBQ aioli to pick it up.
Chipotle Black Bean Burrito
The GF's favorite of the night? The chipotle black bean burrito wrap, which offered a nice mix of familiar flavors.
And as a parting gift? A Yelp Elite beach blanket, a perfect hello to the summer of 2014!
If you're interested in joining in on all the fun, make sure to head to Yelp and post reviews to start your way to 'elite' status! Regardless, it's definitely a great way to stay in touch with your community and the local food scene.
