Philly is so dedicated to the color green right now that a non-football fan — or non-Philadelphian — might mistake it for St. Patrick’s Day.
Folks across the city are getting hyped for the NFC championship, with restaurants, breweries, bakeries, and cafes in the forefront. Themed food and drink is on offer this week and weekend in many forms.
Whether you’re an Eagles lifer, a bandwagon fan (welcome!), or just a person who enjoys verdant food dye, here’s a selection of dishes, drinks, and treats you can consume in the spirit of postseason success.
Green beer at McGillin’s Olde Ale House
1310 Drury St. (Center City)
Philly’s oldest continuously operating tavern has decked itself out in Eagles decor and dyed some of its beer green. Available for $4.25 a glass and $10.50 a pitcher, the pub says the drink is making its second-ever non-St. Patrick’s Day appearance… its first was in 2018, when the Eagles made it to (and won) the Super Bowl.
Spread Eagles Formation flavor by 1-900-ICE-CREAM
Order through Gopuff
Gopuff is selling this limited-edition playoffs-themed ice cream to folks in its Philly market for $12.99 per pint. It’s got a cake batter ice cream base swirled with chocolate ganache and peanut butter.
‘Fly Like An Eagle’ beer from Evil Genius Beer Company
1727 Front St. (Fishtown)
The Fishtown taproom with a knack for pop culture themes has jazzed up a New England IPA by going for a water ice-like flavor. Whether you try the mango or the blue raspberry variety, it’ll cost you $7 a pour at the taproom, or $18 for a 4-pack to-go.
Eagles cookies (and more) at Isgro Pastries
1009 Christian St. (Italian Market)
“It’s A Philly Thing” cakes, football-shaped cannoli chips, green-colored cannoli filling, Eagles-themed cupcakes and cookies… this century-plus-old business is going all out for the Birds. They suggest calling ahead before you come to make sure what you want is in stock.
‘Bird Boxes’ at Juana Tamale
1941 E. Passyunk Ave. (East Passyunk)
The South Philly Mexican comfort food spot is getting in the Eagles spirit with a non-scary “Bird Box,” packed with two chicken chimichangas, chips & guac, key lime pie — “wit Eagles whip” — a Bavarian cream churro, and two lime Jarritos. It’s $40 for the feast, with pre-orders starting Wednesday for pickup on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Midnight green pop-tart at Batter & Crumbs Cafe
1401 Reed St. (Point Breeze)
For a vegan green treat, Batter & Crumbs started serving strawberry-filled pastries iced with emerald-colored vanilla frosting this week for $6 a pop — and apparently there’s more green food to come.
Green and white sweets at Stock’s Bakery
2614 E. Lehigh Ave. (Port Richmond)
The fifth-generation River Wards bakery is taking orders this week for “Fly Eagles Fly” cakes (~$30), as well as iced donuts (90 cents each/$10 per dozen) and butter cookies ($10 per pound) decorated with “Eagles jimmies.” You can also walk in and see what’s available.
