Say hello to the Eater 38, which answers the question, “Where should I eat in Philly?”
This essential group of restaurants covers the whole city (and even beyond), runs the gamut of cuisines and price points, and collectively satisfies virtually all dining needs, whether you want fine dining or counter service, takeout sandwiches or chef’s-choice tasting menus. The list typically updates each quarter, and restaurants should be open for at least six months to qualify. To track down the most exciting new restaurants in town, check out the Eater Heatmap, a periodically updated map of places that have opened in the last six months or so.
For the March 2023 update, welcome the spacious new Fishtown home of Thai restaurant Kalaya; Afrocentric West Philly grocer and cafe Honeysuckle Provisions; Olney’s charcoal-fired Korean barbecue specialist, Kim’s Restaurant; Ambra, a modern Italian tasting-menu restaurant in Queen Village; and El Mezcal Cantina, a wood-fired Mexican restaurant and pizzeria in Point Breeze.
