From www.uwishunu.com, the ten most popular restaurants in Philadelphia according to www.opentable.com. Stephen Starr‘s Buddakan took the top spot, with Chima Brazilian Steakhouse and Parc rounding out the top three. Not surprisingly all ten restaurants are located in Center City, Old City or Rittenhouse Square. Not to take away anything from the restaurants listed, but one thing I learned from real estate, which holds true in the restaurant biz, it’s all about location. As good as these restaurants are, they are obviously more popular because of their central location, as opposed to a restaurant tucked away in the Art Museum area or Fishtown.
Then again, these restaurants are not ranked on food or ambience, but instead their popularity on www.opentable, so excuse my mini-rant. Either way, with our new offices here on Rittenhouse Square, it’s exciting to be so close to some of the most popular restaurants in the city!
