Philadelphia’s food scene is getting more recognition.
On Tuesday, eater — a website that focuses on food and dining in cities across America — has released its annual list of the “12 Best New Restaurants” and it’s no surprise: two Philadelphia restaurants made the cut.
According to the editors, the restaurants on the list represent places that offer exceptional dishes and originality and have set trends.
Honeysuckle Provisions is an Afrocentric grocery store and cafe in West Philadelphia founded by husband and wife Omar Tate and Cybille St. Aude-Tate. This restaurant offers Black made and grown foods and aims to serve the surrounding community.
Eater editor Ernest Owens notes that Honeysuckle Provisions “pays homage to the diversity of its local culture.”
Owens also raves about the “purposeful breakfast sandwiches” and the highly sought-after “Dolla” hoagies.

My Loup Located in Rittenhouse Square, the restaurant is no stranger to being in the spotlight. In September, the restaurant was one of three Philadelphia-area restaurants listed among 50 Places in America. The New York Times’ 2023 Restaurant List is “most excited right now.”
The modern French restaurant was just opened in May 2023 by chefs and owners Alex Kemp and Amanda Shulman.
Eater editor Jaya Saxena describes My Loup as “luxurious but tranquil” and notes the restaurant’s French-Canadian influence on the menu.
Saxena’s review also mentions the decadent options like the Caesar salad with delicious smoked eel and the classic roast beef au poivre, served cold with French fries and horseradish.
