Our 13th Annual Best of the Best Selections
We hope you enjoy 13th Annual Roundup of the best local dining. From new dining hot spots—that’s you, King of Prussia Town Center—to surprises in places like Swarthmore and Toughkenamon, plus old favorites—like West Chester anytime and Media’s ethnic bonanza—there’s so much quality and variety to enjoy.
Check out the pop-ups and brewpubs, places to dine with a purpose, the latest in fast-casual dining, and six kinds of pizza for every mood. We offer you the best cortado, serious cocktails and martinis, a new PA wine to try, and the latest local distillery. There’s food with art, food and music, meals and movies, plus dining with pets.
So, whether you want something very vegan, a savory pie, some Latin cooking or an extreme cooking class, take a look through these pages.
Our best advice: dine local and often in 2017.
Broad Table Tavern
10 S. Chester Rd., Swarthmore
610-543-7500 / TheInnAtSwat.com
Seasonally inspired, locally sourced, showcasing regional and artisanal products—what you'd expect at an eatery in the midst of the Swarthmore campus and part of the new-ish inn there. To the surprise and delight of locals and Swatties (alums), the place has a liquor license, finally allowing signature cocktails, wine and a strong beer list. The modern, airy space gets raves, as do the outdoor deck and indoor fireplace. The food side has an ambitious mission of serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner from a well-received menu of salads, sandwiches, scratch pastas and specialties—from hanger steak to cauliflower steak—plus plenty of fun apps, like grilled octopus and burrata.
