Philly's Neighborhoods: Starting Trends, Taking Names

Philadelphia's neighborhoods satisfy people hungry for innovative dishes and big names in the kitchen. These days, acclaimed chefs are moving in right next door to the city's beloved mom-and-pop shops.

James Beard winner Marc Vetri pleases diners' palates at his two newest spots, Alla Spina and Pizzeria Vetri. NYC transplant Peter Serpico opened his eponymous eatery on famed South Street.

Attracting crowds (and accolades) to South Philadelphia are Christopher Kearse's Will BYOB and Johncarl Lachman's Nordic-themed Noord.

Concept eateries are drawing buzz, too. Federal Donuts started a dough-and-chicken craze, while the world's only pizza museum, Pizza Brain, serves up quirky décor and way-above-average slices.

There's enough tempting food in Philly to fill an entire weekend—or two or three—so book the Visit Philly Overnight Hotel Package™. Get a taste of Philadelphia and its neighborhood flavors here. >>
