Quick Update: The original Instagram post had the wrong phone number. Now we’ve got the right one, plus a few more details about the meal.

We have no restaurant in Philly that’s like Rose’s Luxury. This three-year-old D.C. restaurant got tagged as the best new restaurant in America by Bon Apetit in 2014. Its chef, Aaron Silverman, does a Southern comfort food menu spiked with global influences (pork sausages with habanero and lychee, crispy squid with Yemeni hot sauce) and it is so good that people wait two, three, sometimes four hours to get a seat in the no-reservations dining room.

Philadelphia’s restaurant scene moves fast today—too fast for the kind of monolithic thinking that says a list of the best restaurants in this city could possibly stand, fundamentally unchanged, for two years. Fortunes rise and fall over weeks, not years. Opinions shift. Focus drifts. There was a time when a list of the best restaurants in Philly could have some breathing room—would be just as true (or nearly as true) six months or a year later as it was on the day it hit the stands. But today that sort of thinking seems as quaint as cedar-plank salmon or those bicycles with one big wheel in front—an artifact of another time.
