Philadelphia’s Great Eating

Philadelphia’s Great Eating: B’teyavon!

From famed Iron Chef Jose Garces who grows produce on his own farm, to renown Israeli chef Michael Solomonov who brings you East at Zahav and Dizzengoff… from Stephen Starr whose high-concept restaurants transport you to another world, to the team of Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran who have transformed this neighborhood into a foodie’s Midtown Village, Philadelphia establishments have revitalized Center City as they strive towards local, creative, authentically ethnic fare. Reservation recommended for all “dining.”
