Best of Philly

2016 New Sister Restaurant

South Helm

Helm — the first restaurant from partners Michael Griffiths and Kevin D’Egidio — quickly became one of the best restaurants in the city when it opened in Kensington in 2015. And their new Pennsport expansion, South Helm, is even better. The kitchen here is taking wild chances (examples: an 18-hour braised whole cabbage quarter with XO sauce and diced long hots; bucatini tossed with soft-shell crab) and still winning with virtually everything that hits the table.
