Philadelphia magazine used to post this list every 2 years, but the dining scene in Philly is so hot right now, they need to update it seasonally. D’Artagnan has been serving the chefs in this city for many years; it was one of the first major cities outside of New York that we began servicing with daily truck delivery.
Over the years we have watched Philadelphia go from considering a ban on foie gras (a battle we fought with zest – and won) to a destination-worthy spot for food lovers. With many interesting options, and more James Beard Awards than ever before, the restaurants of Philadelphia have certainly arrived.
What are you missing in Philadelphia?
Biodynamic wines now line the shelves of corner bars. Fast-casual is now the best kind of casual. Modern ain’t haute — chefs would rather live the caveman (and cavewoman) life, cooking over fire, sourcing from farmer buddies. Theme matters less than soul, and diners have developed a collective nose for soul. (Don’t have any? Good luck.) Not to mention, the scene as a whole just moves faster than ever before, expanding and contracting even week-to-week. -Philly Magazine/Foobooz
