There are a few secret places to park around there as well (parking is annoying there if you don't know where). Trio is a place to eat in Fairmount (a panasian place) that is awesome.

Unfortunately, I know nothing about Fishtown.
Trio's food is average and has poor value for what you pay. They have good service and its a BYOB, but the food is not good. Maybe it was our chef that night, but apps tasted like they were prepped a week ago and the seafood was frozen and not fresh, so it feels like its an issue with how the kitchen is managed. I only write this is because this is the only negative food experience I've had in a while.
