I joined the Inquirer as its restaurant critic in 1998, after a stint covering the food beat for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans. Having eaten about 500 restaurant meals a year here ever since, I never cease to be amazed by the diversity and sophistication of Philadelphia's kitchens. To travel from its many authentic ethnic neighborhoods to the gastronomic temples of Walnut Street to its beery gastropubs, cozy BYOBs and multitude of greasy-but-great steak joints, is to know this town delivers satisfaction at every level of the food chain. Including online dish.

4 Bells: According to Craig, the best restaurants in the Philadelphia area.

 
'I was walking on 'The Nine' when I saw the sign: 'For Sale,' " said Javier Ríos. "And I instantly called my brother." RĂ­os was speaking in Spanish and referring to the street - South Ninth Street - that has blossomed in the last decade into a boulevard of dreams for Mexican South Philly.
LANCASTER - Amish buggies and all-you-can-eat buffets. Those are the images that have long defined Lancaster County for most outsiders - with the added bonus of outlet shopping.
