If you’re new to Fishtown and want to get a good feel for the neighborhood, have some friends meet you at Cedar Point. With one of the best (and biggest) deck spaces around, their location at a six-way intersection is the ultimate in people watching real estate. Feel free to set up shop for the day and continue ordering drinks and shared plates as your friends come and go. The buffalo wings served with fried Brussels sprouts and the pickle burger are both major crowd pleasers.
