Where Philadelphia - - The Guide -

BRICK AND MOR­TAR— Amer­i­can. Chef Michael O’Mara com­mands the multi-lay­ered menu at this in­dus­trial-chic, north-of-Chi­na­town restau­rant called ‘BAM!’ for short. Ricci cer­tainly adds an ex­cla­ma­tion point to dishes such as tomato-curry rock shrimp, buck­wheat lin­guine with kale pesto, and black pep­per pork belly. At the bar, cock­tails can be exclusive, but none cost more than 10 bucks. Come early for “You’ll Never Watch Alone” Premier League Satur­days, where matches are shown on a 9 ft. screen.
