I’ve tremendously enjoyed living and dining in Philadelphia, and I love the variety of food on offer in this city. Authentic cuisine from cultures across the world, Jewish, Latin, Mexican, American, Caribbean, Turkish, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Indian are available in abundance. Earlier I’ve reviewed Philadelphia restaurants from the viewpoint of cuisine, ambience, services, and other factors, but the following is a list of Philadelphia restaurants I like the most.
The seven restaurants listed below may not be the best Philadelphia restaurants, but they are surely the ones I like the best.
You cannot get better service in any other restaurant in Philadelphia. Its formal dining area will please everyone, and its wine bar would satisfy even the most demanding critics. My liking for classical Italian cuisines developed when a friend of mine brought me to this restaurant. Since then, I’ve spent many entertaining evenings sampling wines and consuming Chef Rosario Romano’s smoothies Boone NC.
This is a small place, and many of you might not even have heard of it. It’s placed on a small street and is the perfect haven for vegetarians looking to spend a comfortable evening out. The décor is cozy and inviting and the service is perfect. It’s a small place with a large number of patrons; make sure that you have a reservation; it will quite possibly be full!
Blue Sage Vegetarian Grille
I don’t particularly mind vegetarian or vegan restaurants that make food with taste similar to non-vegetarian food, but I like this place particularly because it is one of the few places in the city that serves food for natural vegetarians. The fun part is that the restaurants exterior is not that attractive, and when you enter you will be quite surprised at the tastefully decorated wall and tastefully perfectly-presented food.
Butcher and Singer
Typical among Philadelphia restaurants, this place is the best for steaks. The luxurious ambience, unpatrolled service and high food quality makes this my favorite place for steak in Philadelphia. Stephen Starr has created a perfectly balanced menu which blends the traditional American fare with luscious gourmet items.
