Critics' Picks


Affordable Health Foods >>> Trader Joe’s
There’s a reason why tumbleweeds pass through the health-food aisles of big-box supermarkets while Trader Joe’s customers are fighting for parking spaces. Whether you’re in the market for tofu or cereal, the TJ’s brand is simply cheaper. Various locations, traderjoes.com.

After-Dinner Drink >>> Matador’s Flaming Spanish Coffee
Prepared tableside, Matador’s hottest conversation piece combines freshly brewed coffee, Kahlúa, brandy, Bacardi 151, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set ablaze and topped with vanilla whipped cream, this attention-getter is half dessert, half cocktail, complete heaven. 110 N. Wayne Ave., Wayne; (610) 688-6282, matadorrestaurante.com.

Alfresco Dining (Brunch or Lunch) >>> Firecreek Restaurant + Bar
There may be no better way to enjoy a bubbly mimosa or crisp wedge salad than on the deck at Firecreek overlooking the Brandywine. The calm atmosphere sets the tone for a laid-back brunch or lunch date, and the building’s rustic-meets-modern design helps make this one of the hottest spots with the coolest breeze in the area. 20 E. Lancaster Ave., Downingtown; (610) 269-6000, firecreek-restaurant.com.

Alfresco Dining (Dinner) >>> Tango
When the warm weather beckons, so does Tango’s wraparound patio. The relaxed yet urbane atmosphere, comfy seating and canopied trackside environs are the perfect match for Tango’s contemporary American cuisine. 39 Morris Ave., Bryn Mawr; (610) 526-9500, tastetango.com.
