3 Pennsylvania Restaurants Ranked America’s Best
Here in Pennsylvania, we have some great restaurants. In fact, one might say that we have some of the best restaurants in America. Now there’s proof. The New York Times has released its list of the best restaurants in America. Now, three Pennsylvania spots made the cut. It’s so great to see locally-owned restaurants be named America’s best by the NYT.
Specifically, the New York Times says these are the “50 places in the United States that we’re most excited about right now.” Some states didn’t even get one restaurant, so it’s great that we have three that made the cut.
3 Pennsylvania Restaurants Ranked America’s Best by the NYT
So, which Pennsylvania restaurants were ranked one of the best by the NYT? One is El Chignon in Philadelphia. Some of their suggested dishes, according to the NYT, include, “picture-perfect cemitas made with springy bread (Mr. Aparicio’s specialty), tart aguachile with slivers of scallops in a bath of leche de tigre, and tacos that are traditional (al pastor, pescado) and not so traditional (vegan tacos arabes made with mushrooms) on housemade sourdough tortillas.”
Another one is My Loup, also in Philadelphia. “The chefs Alex Kemp and Amanda Shulman have created a weeknight spot that feels like a dinner party in the spirit of Montreal’s Joe Beef, where both worked,” the NYT states. Finally, the other Pennsylvania restaurant to make the list is Kalaya, also in Philly. “Palm trees tower over 140 seats inside the new location that opened last November in the Fishtown neighborhood,” the NYT describes. What makes this spot special is definitely the decor, but also the great food, of course. The NYT suggests trying the “flower-shaped shaw muang, the fiery venison curry and the goong phao.” Find the full list of the best restaurants in America here.
