Vetri - Philadelphia, PA
Chef/owner Marc Vetri's eatery is often called the best Italian eatery outside of Italy. (Sorry Mario Batali and Tom Colicchio). So it’s little surprise that the 35-seat spot is always jam-packed. The only option here is the chef's four-course, authentically Italian tasting menu, which includes a fish, meat, vegetable, and dessert course. The diminutive size makes this an intimate spot for a special, dressed-up night out.
