Cross street: 22nd and Carpenter
Description: SoWe Bar and Kitchen is a casual American bistro offering creative comfort food in warm, welcoming setting. Proprietors Nancy Law and Troy Barton have designed SoWe to be the neighborhood's "home away from home", knowing that Rob Miracle's seriously good bistro fare will draw the Center City gastro-crowd to "South West Ceneter City Philly". Great snacks, burgers, salads and large plates are served by a friendly, knowledgeable staff. An extensive bar selection, wines by the glass and craft beers on tap and by the bottle. Kitchen is open late night. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday.

Nice light fare place in South Philly. We had the Pho French Dip & Pork Belly Sandwich both of which were delicious. Cocktails were good but not noteworthy. There were two interesting drinks on their menu but they didn't have an ingredient so we couldn't try them. Service was very good.

The back room was stuffy on a 75 degree day. Fish and chips was very good, mussels not so much. Three, 6, or 9 slider options appreciated. Great fries and onion threads. The service was a little off though---interrupting our conversations, making gratuitous comments about what we were talking about, and disappeared periodically. We had to wait quite a while for our food as well. I do recommend it if you're in the area, but not a destination place.

Arrived at 12:00, seated at 12:50, 2:05 still not served our lunch....my review is giving the benifit of the doubt, that the food is average. Not worth the time it cost me either!

I used to love this place when it was up on 22nd & Christian (not a great place to walk to from center city) and was sad when it disappeared. I very happily just realized that it moved to 6th & South! Good food, nice portions, casual comfortable atmosphere, pleasant staff, good service, reasonable prices. We had grape leaves and spinach-cheese rolls for appetizers, and stuffed cabbage and chicken kebabs for entrees. All were excellent. There are many Middle Eastern / Mediterranean restaurants with similar price range and decent quality here in Philly - this one is particularly good, with some of the same types of items (kebabs, grape leaves, etc) but also many different and interesting things. For a good meal of hearty tasty food with a Mediterranean / Turkish flavor and excellent value, I recommend it highly.
