Craig LaBan just put together his annual Philadelphia Dining In Review column for the Inky. Do you need to read it? Not really, unless capsule versions of LaBan’s 2007 reviews float your boat. But we’d be glad to distill his “Best Of” list for y’all, since that’s the one that matters anyway:


Best chef: Jose Garces.

Best restaurant: Osteria.

Best meal: A “farm table dinner” at Talula’s Table.

Best ethnic delivery: Tiffin.

Best relocated classic: Fuji.

Best new BYOB: Blackfish.

Best single bite: Tinto’s blue-cheese-smeared “montadito” toast topped with duck confit wrapped in Serrano ham, crowned with a black cherry.

Best raw food: Scallop and watermelon seviche at Xochitl.

Best updated bubbe food: Veal kreplach with artichokes at Rae.
