Welcome to MetroGuide.Network's Philadelphia DiningGuide, a directory of restaurants and related restaurant information for Metropolitan Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Use MetroGuide's DiningGuide service to find Philadelphia restaurants by location or cuisine.
As a birthplace of the American Revolution, the name Philadelphia is synonymous with all things American from the brand-name cream cheese to the renowned Philly-style sandwich. Understandably reflecting its 300-year history, the Philadelphia dining scene ranges from colonial-era restaurants barely changing from when first swinging open, to contemporary outposts popping up with trendy décor and menus sometimes bordering on the exotic. Steakhouses abound, and that standby of old -- Italian cuisine -- ranges from South Philadelphia homestyle to haute elegant. Ethnic cuisines from Cuban to Vietnamese are as big here as just about anywhere else in the nation. Definitely, Philadelphia's dining has evolved way beyond turtle soup, subs and hoagies. Rankings of America's top restaurants consistently include some of Philadelphia's finest, and scores of youthful culinary entrepreneurs have gravitated to the city with the Liberty Bell. Compared to New York, insiders say Philadelphia restaurants often hit higher marks on quality and service, with tabs that happily can be up to one-third less, especially at higher-end establishments.
