100 Things to do in Philly + Events + Philadelphia Deals & more!

In a recent article published by Food & Wine magazine, our very own and very inspiring East Passyunk Ave was named a "Top Ten Foodie Street" in the entire country. Now, to me, that is saying a lot, considering the ubiquitous culinary revolution taking place, reaching everywhere from major metropolitan areas to the nooks and crannies that make up this vast land that it the U.S. Of all of these up-and-coming food-crazed "communities" (for lack of a better word), they chose our little slice of paradise as one of the best.

For a while now, we've seen the likes of Stephen Starr, Jose Garces and Marc Vetri grace us with their unequivocal ability to churn out remarkable restaurant after remarkable restaurant. We've seen newcomers like Kevin Sbraga and George Sabatino (and now Elijah Milligan) create dishes and menus worthy of Richie Rich's finest table. We've seen a food cart revolution take place all over the city and a new love and appreciation for all things cuisine develop. Basically, in the last 10-15 years, Philadelphia has gone from a "meh, I guess we can go out to dinner" kind of town only known for its roller coaster sports teams and psychotic fans, to a "lets go to Talula's Garden, I want to try the crispy Pennsylvania lamb shoulder confit with buttery polenta and wilted treviso, did you know it's from a local farm?" kind of town.

The transformation is pretty amazing. We've worked hard to build this city and its flourishing reputation to where it is today, and it's good to see people actually take interest and care about the food culture in Philly. It's good for the city on the whole, both culturally and economically, and it's making Philly an even better place to be than it already is. Obviously it's showing, Food & Wine definitely noticed.
