The Top 10 Most Popular Restaurants in Philadelphia According to OpenTable

    Philly’s restaurant scene has grown by leaps and bounds over the years, but there are some restaurants that are consistently on the “to-try” list of visitors or the “to-try-to-get-into” list of locals.

    Uwishunu lists the 10 most popular restaurants in the city, according to, the popular reservations website. Coming in at No. 1? Stephen Starr’s Asian fusion wonderland Buddakan. Iron Chef Jose Garces has two entries on the list — Amada and Chifa at Nos. 5 and 9, respectively. Newcomer Barbuzzo, at only five months old, cracks the list at No. 6 (must be that awesome salted caramel budino).
