Off the Line: A Culinary Tour of Lansdowne

Drive by and you might miss the best meals you’ve had all week. Stop by and you won’t regret it.

Though not technically on the Main Line, Lansdowne is only a short 20-30 minute drive from most Main Line spots. It doesn’t look like much driving through, but Lansdowne Avenue is a hub of great restaurants and cafés and a terrific Saturday farmers’ market.

Have you ever dined at Sycamore? The BYO has been open for a few years now, and has received rave reviews since as one of the area’s best restaurants. And now, Sycamore’s new sister restaurant is open. NoBL (North of Baltimore Avenue) is a Mediterranean restaurant focusing on traditional (and not-so-traditional) Mediterranean flavors reimagined in seasonal and exciting new ways. If it’s anything we’ve seen come out of the kitchens of Sycamore, diners are in for a huge treat.

Not much farther down the street sits Argana Moroccan Cuisine, an authentic Moroccan restaurant with entrées not exceeding $12.95.

Consider swinging by the farmers’ market every Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Lansdowne Avenue parking lot. A stellar list of participating vendors include Green Aisle Grocery, MyHouse Cookies (a 2011 Best Of winner) and Golden Valley Coffee Roasters, to name only a few.
