Though summer isn’t technically over for a few weeks, we’re all feeling those back to school vibes in September. In Philadelphia, people are returning from summer vacations, and local restaurants are ready. Zahav opened a new, walk-in only dining space, the teams behind Rival Brothers and New Liberty launched their stunning new cafe Enswell, and Pod has returned to its sushi-roots. This time of year, what many call “Local Summer,” is still lovely down the shore. Head to the beach for classic and fresh dining. We’ve got recommendations for both.
Whether in and around the city or down the shore, the Resy Hit List covers the old school and new school spots that you need to hit this month. Dive in to get our road map for the best of extended summer.
