Philadelphia magazine’s famed “Best of Philly” awards are a symbol of pride for the city and all of the award recipients.  Posting Best of Philly stickers next to Zagat rated signs on the doors of the awarded eateries, Philadelphia Magazine has now come out with their most recent list of the Top 50 Restaurants in the city and we’ve compiled their top 10 list right here for our readers.

1. Blackfish

Conshohocken’s famed BYOB with Chip Roman, former chef at Le Bec Fin, blackfish is one of the best and most creative seafood restaurants in all of Philadelphia while their lunchtime burgers are simply out of control.  119 Fayette St, Conshohocken, PA.  

.

2. Vetri

Perhaps a little pricey, Vetri is one of the most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants in the area, if not the entire east coast.  Taking the original spot of the Le Bec Fin and running with it, Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin bring an elite restaurant with countless awards over the 13 years since it opened.  1312 Spruce St, Philadelphia, PA.

A very rare Gallic style BYOB, apparently these restaurateurs have their own take on “wild partridge.”  Really?  Wild Partridge?  You know the old saying; don’t knock it until you try it.  1009 South 8th St, Philadelphia, PA.

.

4. Bistrot La Minette

An authentic Parisian restaurant in one of our favorite neighborhoods, Queen Village, Bistrot La Minette of course serves snails, duck and foie gras.  This might be the best French restaurant in the city.  623 South 6th St, Philadelphia, PA.

Sitting at the bar one night in the old Brasserrie Perrier, I once asked a gay interior designer what the best designed restaurant in the city was and his response was immediately “Lacroix.”  With a stunning design and maybe the best food in Rittenhouse Square, Lacroix has half priced bottles of wine on Sundays and Mondays.  210 W. Rittenhouse, Philadelphia, PA.

.

6. Osteria

An extraordinary Italian restaurant on North Broad, Osteria serves a renowned mortadella with Sicilian pistachio pesto with mozzarella and some of the best artisan pizzas in the city.

7. Fish

Pairing Tuna with Veal and Monkfish with Lambshank, Philadelphia magazine is raving about Fish restaurants red wine selection.  1708 Lombard St, Philadelphia PA.
