What do you consider to be Philly's best-kept dining secret?

I can't think of a secret place here, but El Rinconcito Cubano in Chicago was a great place my cousin and I use to split meals and Half Shell for Crab Legs (in Chicago).

What is your favorite restaurant in the city?

Tangerine WAS, but the whole private party thing took me for a loop when I returned. Don't like all of the changing chefs either. Love N. 3rd for the Pierogi and specials.

What cuisines have you not tried but would really like to?

I can't think of any. Someone would have to ask me if I tried it for me to know if I have not. I'll try anything once.

What are your favorite types of cuisines?

Moroccan, some French, some Cuban...I like dishes over cuisine type since I am not suppose to eat certain foods and combinations. I love escargot, but don't care for crepes for example.


Recently returned to Philly after two years in Chicago, but originally from Michigan. Many of the places I loved changed (private parties only at Tangerine) and new places to explore.
