High Street, Serpico get Bon Appetit nominations

High Street on Market in Old City and Serpico on South Street are on Bon Appetit's short list for 2014.

Bon Appetit sent Andrew Knowlton on a cross-country trip to identify the best new restaurants in America.

Two Philadelphia yearlings have made the list, out today:

  • High Street on Market, where head baker Alex Bois' bread program gets the praise - as it fits beautifully within chef Eli Kulp's three-meals-a-day concept.
  • Serpico, where New York emigre Peter Serpico "manages to marry sophisticated techniques with a dorm-room stoner's idea of flat-out deliciousness."

BA will announce the "hot 10" on Aug. 19. They will be showcased in September's print edition.
