Other than Philly Cheesesteak, Philadelphia isn’t particularly known as a world-class, fine-dining destination, yet. But the city’s up-and-coming food scene has restaurants that rival with the best in New York and Las Vegas. When you find yourself in The City of Brotherly Love, visit one (or all) of the best restaurants in Philadelphia.
1. Barclay Prime
Barclay Prime will probably top your list of the best steakhouses ever, if only for their Kobe Sliders.
If you recognize the celebrity chef moniker then you will have high expectations of the sushi, and Morimoto delivers.
3. Bistrot La Minette
When categorizing the best restaurants in Philadelphia, Bistrot La Minette is the front runner in the French category.
The brunch served here is beautiful and delicious and everything else a great brunch should be.
You won’t get much elbow room at Fond, but the food is outstanding.
6. Modo Mio
Modo Mio serves impeccable Italian food and is reasonably priced, especially considering the quality of the food served.
Be forewarned, Vedge is rather expensive. But it’s all vegan, divine, and those individuals in your group who can’t fathom a meal sans meat will eat this place up.
You will have dreams of running through a field of sunflowers and daisies with Chicken Tikka Masala at your side after eating at Ekta.
9. Little Fish
A list of the best restaurants in Philadelphia just wouldn’t feel right without a seafood entry. Little Fish only serves seafood, and the seafood served is very fresh.
10. Vernick Food & Drink
Anything involving octopus or toast at Vernick is absolutely delicious.
