The good: the New York Times “36 Hours in…” feature from today is all about Philadelphia. The better : it is not, as some point out, about how Philly is the “Sixth Borough.” The best: not merely a piece on the delights of this town, it specifically calls Philly out for having a great dining scene, calling it a “destination city” and noting that “restaurant openings reinforce the city’s growing culinary reputation.” Word up.
The article name-checks Chifa, Silk City Diner, North Bowl, Zahav, and Time as the places to visit. The 36 hours framework is kind of a “last meal” scenario, but if you only had 36 hours in Philly, are these the restaurants you’d recommend?
