Everything is turning up Philadelphia this week, as Travel + Leisure joins Bon Appetit in listing the many, many reasons to eat here. Most of the greatest hits show up on the list, but it's good to see some of the underrated joints get some attention as well. No one will ever get tired of Zahav and Paesano's being two of our main attractions, but the addition of well-deserved nods for Koo Zee Doo and The Farm & Fisherman give credence to the true depth of talent that's happening here right now.
T+L also highlights our bevy of homegrown empires coming from Stephen Starr, Jose Garces, and Marcie Turney and Val Safran. All-in-all, it's a feel good week for the Philly food scene which has been living on the edge of blowing up big time for the past few years. Congrats to everyone who made the cut.
