2012 Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S. " Vetri

Marc Vetri
Philadelphia, PA

Chef-owner Marc Vetri's classical training in Northern Italy informs an elevated, bold contemporary menu at this top East Coast destination. The former à la carte menu has been replaced with a nightly $135 prix fixe, which allows Vetri to explore and evolve --- his cooking ranges effortlessly from dazzling pastas and ethereal seafood, to grand dishes like antelope Fiorentina or baby goat. A massive wine cellar also offers rare regional Italian specialties.
