Best Eats in Philly

Here at the Center City Team, we are all locals and we love two things: our city, and food! Luckily, Philadelphia has some of the best eats in the United States. And while we love a good Philly cheese steak (how could we not!), we also love the diversity of cuisine found in every pocket of the city.

Many of our favorite Philly neighborhoods offer world-class chefs serving up artisan, gourmet fare right alongside hole-in-the-wall restaurants serving up fascinating ethnic eats and fusion foods.

In short, it’s impossible to get bored of our food scene. Here we share the best eats in Philly—and nothing is off limits! Food halls, fine-dining, and burger shacks, if it’s good food then you can be sure a member of the Center City Team has mowed down there and shared the tale for all hoping to find great new places to eat in Philly.

We hope you enjoy the advice we offer here, and if you need additional information on anything, or to speak with one of our real estate agents, contact the Center City Team: 215.440.2093
