You would expect New York City and Vegas to make the cut on a Top 10 restaurant list, but Philly?
That’s right. Morimoto on Chestnut Street took fifth place on TripAdvisor’s list of Top 10 Celebrity Chef-Owned Restaurants in the U.S. The Japanese eatery is owned by “Iron Chef” Masaharu Morimoto.
More than 560,00 restaurants were judged by editors and travelers from the world’s largest travel site, Trip Advisor.
One traveler said, “There’s a great deal of innovation here, from tempura with Gorgonzola and tofu that’s not only cooked, but made from scratch table side. Expect the unusual.”
Locals and visitors agree that the trendy décor is stunning, but the food just seals the deal. Their impressive and innovative menu is one of their best attributes.
