50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » bistro_la_minette_philadelphia_best_restaurants
38. Bistrot La Minette
This place is like a dream of France: a tiny little Parisian bistro ripped from its moorings along the Seine and dropped smack in the middle of Philly. On its best nights, there is perhaps no restaurant in the city so capable of transporting you somewhere other than where you are—and then bringing you home again gently when the evening inevitably ends.
Must Try: If you walk out of here without eating the snails, someone should just punch you. Especially if you’re the kind of person who normally doesn’t eat snails.
If Only: The bar were a bit more serviceable. Six crowded seats and a (deliberate) lack of certain spirits can make the place a challenge for non-wine drinkers.
