In a neighborhood where it can be difficult to find a bar not dripping with grubby hipsters, Maracuja is a respite of down-to-earth service, choice music, a pool table and space to spread out. The ivy-covered bar is run by a husband-and-wife team, Connie and Charlie, the former of which painted the fantastical ceiling murals herself. Charlie has a secret fried chicken recipe he’ll occasionally make for parties, and a cheesesteak that can extend the evening another hour with its serious heft. Come early, or stay late. There’s always a seat at the bar and friendly face behind it.
