Best of Philly

2011 Restaurant to Take Your New York Friends To


What do you get a food snob who’s tried everything? Grilled duck hearts, obviously. Or how about warm Turkish hummus, fried cauliflower and egg-topped lamb kebabs? Wash it all down with a bourbon-and-mint Lemonnana with hints of verbena in the easy dining room of this Israeli hot spot, and your snooty Brooklyn buddy will be canceling his plans at Minetta and begging to Amtrak it down again next weekend.
