99 miles to philly

Don’t go all the way to Philly…

by Christian Lavery

We recently took a trip down to Philly and we had an incredible time (see for yourself HERE). But while we were there, we didn’t quite get to do everything we had hoped. Sure, we saw every performer under the sun, but without sounding greedy, not even such an amazing array of musicians could satisfy our stomachs. And before we knew it, we were heading back to New York without making a stop at Philly food staples like Geno’s or Pat’s – the two main Philadelphia restaurants specializing in cheesesteaks that sit right across the street from one another.

Now, at first, we thought our craving for a classic Philly cheesesteak would fade away with each day back in the Big Apple. However, we were mistaken. And before long, we came to the conclusion that no matter where else we went or what else we ate, we weren’t going to be happy until we had bitten into a cheesesteak that fulfilled our sweet, savory desires. So we set out on a search for a comparable cheesesteak, and finally it was settled. Our next meal was going to be at 99 Miles To Philly.

With two locations, one in the East Village and one in Midtown, a piece of Philadelphia has landed in New York. We walked in, went up to the counter, and of course there was only one thing we were getting: a Philly Cheesesteak with provolone and onions. It was packed with steak, loaded with cheese and the flavors collectively created a sandwich that would force Philadelphians to feel at home. We opted for a side of cheese waffle fries and a can of orange San Pellegrino.

The sandwich menu also provides chicken, vegetable and two more cheese options as well as plenty of possible add-ons such as peppers, mushrooms, tomato, and lettuce. And if you just want something to snack on there’s always chicken fingers, mozzarella moons, or jalapeno poppers to put on your plate. Check out the entire menu HERE and before you make plans to hit the City of Brotherly Love, stop in at 99 Miles to Philly – it will save you the trip.
