Philadelphia restaurants

From working-class street eats to haute cuisine, Philadelphia is a city that loves its food. When Le Bec-Fin, the revered French establishment, was renovated in 2002, Drexel University snapped up many of the original furnishings so it could re-create the interior in its student-run restaurant. Local concert promoter Stephen Starr has become a restaurant impresario (with 12 venues) by dishing out good food in entertaining environs. Access to regional ingredients from Pennsylvania Dutch farms encourages seasonal innovation, and even the restrictive state liquor laws work to the city's culinary advantage by fomenting a network of small B.Y.O.B. restaurants. We haven't included every place to get a great meal, but if you're looking for others, just ask around. Philadelphians are opinionated about food and will happily tell you where to go and what to order.
