50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » pumpkin_philadelphia_best_restaurants
Ian Moroney’s South Street mainstay got a rustic makeover this year, but the cooking remains as elegant and honest as ever, from one of the most exquisitely seared duck breasts we had all year to the enveloping warmth of a side of sweet-potato polenta.
Insider Tip: Bring your good wine—this BYO’s glassware befits a grand cru.
Dessert to Get: Warm chocolate cake. (We know it sounds boring, but when it’s on the menu, and it usually is, Pumpkin always does it right.)
Value Play: The five-course Sunday dinner for $40 can’t be beat.
