A few years back, Urban Outfitters decided to get into the restaurant game, and they bought, among other places, Amis Trattoria. So it makes sense that they opened an Amis offshoot right by their headquarters in the Navy Yard. The small pasta bar has good drinks and a small menu of antipasti dishes, sandwiches, and some solid pasta options (our favorite is the bucatini with almond pesto), and it’s a good spot to walk to after a game or concert on Broad Street.
