PHL council

As part of Newsworks/Plated’s Dishing DNC – a guide to Philadelphia’s vibrant food scene – three Philadelphia City Council members shared their favorite locally owned eateries in a series of videos posted to social media. They’re encouraging all visitors to the city, not just DNC delegates, to seek out the tastes of Philly’s neighborhoods, even those slightly off the beaten path. Not only does this give visitors a broader taste of Philly, choosing small, locally owned restaurants who hire local residents and are part of their communities helps build a stronger city.

Now, on to the food…
