We moved several years ago and still talk about the Philadelphia restaurants and how much we miss them. Awesome restaurant scene, so innovative and dynamic and fun - and so many chefs! We will be back for 5 nights during the Christmas season and want to fully revisit our philadelphia glory days! We will be staying in Society Hill so I'd like to focus on downtown.
Heres the catch - I don't want to just go back to the places we loved, which may or may not still be wonderful (or even open). One thing I loved about Phila restaurants was the hot new places to try.
Please help catch us up on what we have missed!
Places we used to love and still discuss: Morimoto, Striped Bass (before and after the transition), Susana Foo, Buddakahn, Dmitris, Washington Square, several BYOs which I cant recall the names, and of course that spot in the back of the Reading Terminal Market with the amazing blueberry pancakes, the amish gals and those HUGE sticks of butter (yum).
Help us relive the magic - old and new!
