Best of Philly

2011 Best Italian Restaurant

Monsu Restaurant

Peter McAndrews’s rough and rustic Italian Market ode to the tempestuous culinary history of Sicily is a complicated mix of the high-toned and the lowbrow, offering everything from wine-braised pork shank to French snails. Sound too challenging? Just shut up, sit down, order the arancia with short-rib ragu or sausage lasagna with raisins and cinnamon, and thank us later.
