Ahhh, the City of Philadelphia known for so many things and  the food and restaurant scene is one of them! There are so many choices that sometimes it’s hard to make a decision, so we usually resort to the usual places. South Philly is our favorite area and if you are looking to venture to the area for a great meal, you are making the right decision!


See the top 7 favorite spots to visit in South Philly!


Hungry Pigeon

American cuisine and opened for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! The food gives you a homey feeling when you eat it, has locally sourced ingredients and light!  We recommend getting the whole fried chicken!


Looking for fine dining? Look no further, the Laurel is the modern fine dining experience you need! This restaurant is the model that other restaurants base their business around! They serve Dinner only, so make sure to have reservations!


This French restaurant on East Passyunk Ave. is everything you need if you’re looking for French cuisine and a great fine dining experience. From the short, polished bar to the white tablecloths in the dining room to a busy Friday night when everyone is eating foie gras with hazelnuts and poached lobster in carrot-ginger puree, Townsend remains our best answer to the question of whether or not fine dining in Philly is dead.

The King Tavern

We love French food and this place has it all! In an ideal world, every neighborhood bar would have a kitchen that served a perfect steak frites, shareable socca, and burgers studded with cornichons. While we may not live in a perfect world, we do have the Good King, and some days, that almost feels like enough.

Little Fish

When you’re there in the teeny- tiny dining room, knocking back your special-occasion bubbly, popping pudgy little raw scallops dressed in pineapple and hot peppers, dragging the tines of your fork across the back of your black cod just to hear how crispy it is, you’ll understand how a small, nearly 25-year-old seafood BYOB was able to capture our hearts – and how Alex Yoon (its new chef and owner) was able to keep a good thing going.


Where else but in Lee Styer’s kitchen could Korean beef tartare and Spanish octopus rub shoulders with pork belly over cheddar grits and grilled duck hearts — and none of it seem the least bit out of place?

Le Virtù

Today, the restaurant remains the rustic, traditional Abruzzese restaurant it’s always been. And you can rest easy knowing that Le Virtù’s kitchen is in good hands with Damon Menapace at the helm.
