Varga Bar - 10th and Spruce

Have been here twice now.

Beer selection is close to unparalleled in Center City. All-American with many rarities. However, beer prices are on the high side (all pints at least $6).

Food, on the other hand, has run the gamut from excellent (confit wings - un-frickin-believable. literally fall-off-the-bone) to pretty good (crab cheese fries, kobe sliders) to mediocre (roast pork sandwich, brussels sprouts, kobe chili dog, spinach salad - $9 for a tiny plate!).

The cheese presentation is outstanding - for $5, a decent-sized serving of cheese accompanied by some amazing condiments.

I had very high hopes for this place given the beer list and owners (who own Mercato and Valanni), but, unless things improve, it'll only be beer and appetizers (cheese, fries, wings) here. Those wings alone are worth visiting for.
