Smoke and a Lamb Shank at Aksum

Hoping to become the go-to spot of the West Philly gentry, Aksum opens Wednesday, July 20 with a menu that includes everything from burgers to falafel to pasta, and if you're in no rush to get home for sitcom reruns, Aksum also has a hookah lounge that offers premium shisha tobacco and great views of West Philly street scenes. Unfortunately, you probably won't catch a glimpse of Will Smith, because he spends most of his days on the playground. [Thrillist]
