LaBan revisits Philly’s top restaurants to find the best

    If only everyone’s work day could be so tasty.

    Yesterday was the big reveal of the region’s top restaurants, as determined by Philadelphia Inquirer food critic Craig LaBan. LaBan’s been on a mission to revisit all the top-rated restaurants in the region to find the best five.

    Using his bell system (four bells is the best rating), LaBan found Vetri, Zahav, Bibou, Talula’s Table and Fountain Restaurant at The Four Seasons Hotel to be tops.


    But perhaps even more interesting is the look back at LaBan’s ratings over the years to get the restaurants’ original rankings and see where they all stand now — some have gone from four bells to two.
