Laser Wolf, Kalaya, Gojjo Ethiopian, and More: Introducing the Philadelphia Hit List


Philadelphia restaurants rolled with the punches the pandemic threw over the past few months, pivoting to takeout, meal kits, to-go cocktails, pop-ups, and whatever they could do to continue feeding the community. 

As restrictions in Philadelphia begin to ease, and as the dining scene expands with outdoor capacity, restaurants are working hard to create environments that are comfortable and safe for both their diners and their staff. So eat well, and stay well, by wearing your mask, washing your hands, and tipping generously. And otherwise, welcome to our debut Hit List for Philadelphia — with essential picks for both dining out and dining in in the height of summer.
