The Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia » Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia: Monsú
There’s simple Sicilian, baroque Sicilian, and Peter McAndrews’s spin on Sicilian—which takes it up yet another notch at this casual Italian Market BYO. At Monsú gnocchi come with sausage ragu, chocolate, cinnamon and rosemary, and pork osso buco scented with apricots and marsala plays like a collision of Italy and North Africa. And that’s what we love about Monsú: Its influences are as diverse as the civilizations that have made a mark upon Sicily itself.
Don’t miss: The arancia-saffron rice bowl with short-rib ragu, exotic mushrooms and bordelaise sauce.
