Cuban | Center City, Philadelphia

We were a group of 4 but decided to order tapas style so we had 6 starters. There starters are good sized and great for sharing. We enjoyed all of them, least favorite was the fried pork; others were ceviche, both octopus dishes, stuffed plantain (really good), can't remember the last one. Dessert were actually on the smaller size. Would definitely go back again. More

Italian | Queen Village, Philadelphia

We enjoyed a lovely meal here last night. Inventive food, perfectly portioned and paced. Thoroughly knowledgeable and kind staff. Impeccable wine pairing by the sommelier. Love that they’re connected to Southwark so you can wait at the bar. Their attention to detail was impeccable, they personalized not only my meal but my actual written tasting menu to accommodate a nut allergy. We had a 9 course meal and felt wonderful after, not bloated or stuffed like you would expect. This was completely due to how much attention they pay to portions. It was spot on. I felt wonderful afterwards. Our only suggestions would be to turn the music down, and perhaps choose a softer genre for such an intimate place. We had trouble at times hearing the explanation of the food. And if you offer the salad course with the amazing thin layer of pate again, be sure to pair it with a soft bread that can soak up the amazing flavors at the end. We nearly licked our plates! Ok, one of us actually licked our plate but I won’t tell who 😁 Well done Ambra. More

Excellent atmosphere, quiet and great for conversation. The buffet was clean and well-presented, although because of the way food was maintained on the buffet it may have lost some of its flavor and texture. There was a wide selection of dishes to chose from, with something for everyone's tastes. Our waiter Huang was very attentive and professional. Overall, Vita Nova was an excellent choice for celebrating a special occasion. More

Discover Philadelphia

No longer just NYC’s 8th borough, Philadelphia is a well-kept secret, especially when it comes to food. Sure, you can still get a cheesesteak or its lesser-known, debatably better cousin—the roast pork sandwich—but the restaurant scene has taken off in recent years, with Israeli, vegetarian, and Spanish food in the mix. The provolone-lined cheese shops of eras gone by exist in bigger, better versions and the large, welcoming brasseries that dot Rittenhouse Square make you feel like you’re in Paris. Reading Terminal Market pays homage to Lancaster County’s Pennsylvania Dutch fare, with a bounty of pretzels and apple butter, while local bakeries, baristas, and breweries set a high culinary bar for the City of Brotherly love.
