High Street on Market is a neighborhood spot in an area that’s full of confused tourists trying to figure out what the difference is between Independence Hall and Independence Mall. We’ve been coming here for their breakfast sandwiches for years, and if we could only eat one lunch for the rest of our lives, it would be their smoked duck cubano, hands down. While you should sit down and eat here at least once, you can also stop by and grab a grain bowl to go when you need to leave the office for 20 minutes to remind yourself that a world exists outside your cubicle.
