StarChefs, the top insider rag in the business, is in Philly to search for new Rising Stars to add to their roster. This is their first visit to Philly in quite awhile (and rumor has it that they stuck around for a bit this time), so there's a good chance we will be seeing some of our favorite local cooks grace the pages of StarChefs early next year.

The Insider is reporting that they visited Zahav, Will, Le Bec Fin, Rittenhouse Tavern, JG Domestic, Vernick, Sbraga, R2L, Talula's Garden, a.kitchen, Square 1682, and McCrossen's Tavern. In addition to the restaurants listed, they stopped by two boozehouses, Hop Sing Laundromat and Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co.

After doing a tireless search that includes face-to-face interviews and tastings, the editorial staff will select around a dozen people to be included in the publication, with an awards' ceremony in February of 2013. So, who do you think will make the cut? Add your thoughts to the comments below.
