Matyson was among the first of the city BYOBs to realize that a meal can be casual, even playful, and notable. Joyous general manager Michael Wightman sets the tone in the basic dining room, and chefs Ben Puchowitz and Brian Lofink, in addition to their solid New American menu, create whimsical weekly tasting menus (five courses for $45, Monday through Thursday).

Poor me. I live in Boston. The culinary scene is so way better in Philly, and Matyson is a pinnacle of great food, super service and really nice people. Sweetbreads were excellent. Sturgeon was excellent. Maris, my wonderful server, was a pleasure to meet. I will be back!!!

Just back from their tasting menu for 1/6/10.
BEST EVER!!! You can't go wrong with the chefs selections. Full house on a Wednesday Nite should say it all.

This restaurant is by far the Best in the City. There are very few restaurants that we make return trips to when there are so many good restaurants to choose from. The chefs selections for their tasting menu are always top quality! The staff always friendly which makes for a wonderful dinner experience.

We had the 5 course tasting menu last night & it was RIDICULOUS - as in EXCELLENT. Each dish was better than the next. Spacing between courses was timed perfectly. ADDITIONALLY - the COFFEE (def NOT starbucks) ROCKS - the true test of a GREAT restaurnat!
