Eater likes South Philly more than Center City

Eater Philly recently updated their Eater 38, the food blog’s list for the most noteworthy restaurants in the city and suburbs.

Most noteworthy about the list, in our minds anyway, is that it includes 16 restaurants below South Street, more than any other section of the city, including Center City’s 13 (Brauhaus Schmitz, also on the list, is on South Street, so you can add that to whichever category you like).

The list includes expected stars like Fond, Bibou and Le Virtu but also newcomer Noord and surprising mentions of more casual places, including South Philly Tap Room and John’s Roast Pork.

The whole thing is worth a look, if only so you can dream about having enough money to sample all 38. Click on the image above to go to the list.

We’re getting all kinds of love recently, with Bloomberg essentially just saying the South Philly is half the reason why outsiders should move to the city.

As a side note, this kind of designation will inevitably spark a discussion about what is “South Philly.” Traditionally, South Philly was everything below South Street, so we’re sticking with that. Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments.
