Philadelphia's new guidelines for indoor/outdoor gatherings in effect Oct. 16.

Philadelphia has a booming food scene.

From nationally recognized restaurants with award-winning chefs to local favorites, there’s something to excite every palate.

Philadelphians are passionate about food, as evidenced by the dynamic restaurant scene that continues to blossom in the city. Home to internationally acclaimed restaurants like Zahav, winner of the James Beard Award for Best Restaurant 2019, and award-winning innovative chefs like Michael Solomonov, José Garces, Marc Vetri and Susanna Foo, our diverse restaurants serve everything from classic American and traditional ethnic foods to experimental fusion dishes that wow the palate.

Plus, you’ll find a number of dining options that are BYOB, meaning you can bring your own libations to enjoy with your meal. Of course, Philadelphia eats aren’t strictly gourmet. Home of the cheesesteak and hoagie, the city also boasts countless establishments dishing out comfort food favorites, the memory of which will have you planning a return trip before you’ve even made it home. Check out one (or three or four) of our many local eateries and taste for yourself.
