Two Philly Restaurants Ranked Best in Country

In the October edition of Gourmet Magazine there is a list of the top 50 restaurants in the country, according to Ruth Reichl and the rest of the magazine’s editorial staff. Happily, two Philadelphia restaurants have landed on that list, both for the first time, in positions 16 and 25.

Striped Bass
occupies the #16 slot. Neil Stein’s former seafood palace, it is now part of Stephen Starr’s portfolio of restaurants. I ate there once several years ago with my cousins, for their wedding anniversary. It was one of the lushest, most indulgent eating experiences I ever had, and I would love to go back to see what the Starr group has done with it.

Philadelphia native, Marc Vetri, is the owner and chef of the self-named Vetri, the other Philly establishment on the list, coming in at 25. I’ve never eaten there, but have heard wonderful things. I have been looking forward to the opening of Osteria on North Broad, since I first heard about it a couple of months ago.
