What are the best new restaurants in Philadelphia?

I’ve heard Philly’s food scene is on fire lately. Where are some great new places in town? Budget is open, I just want to make sure I try the best new ones during my trip! 

Philadelphia (Pennsylvania)

E Passyunk Ave has a ton of amazing restaurants, including Laurel, the restaurant from Top Chef Nicholas Elmi, and Bing Bing Dim Sum a newer restaurant that's a take on dim sum. Hands down the best part about Philly dining is the amount of places that are BYO. Be warned though because there are a fair amount that are also cash only. I love Audrey Claire and Pumpkin which are both Center City West area. I'm excited to try Same Same, a Vietnamese Street food place in Northern Liberties. There's also amazing Vietnamese food around 8th and Washington. I agree with Brian that Khmer Kitchen is a great spot in Philly (and also BYO).

It really is on fire. The most sought after table in the city is Laurel and though you have to book half a year in advance, it's fun to follow LaurelEPX on twitter for last minute cancellations. You can stick with the staples, e.g. French at Bibou and Townsend, Italian at Palladino's and Osteria, American at Vernick Food & DrinkSerpico, and SBRAGA. Some really unique offerings that you won't find in many cities are courtesy of chef Michael Solomonov at Zahav and Abe Fisher, and Jose Garces with Amada and Volvér. Two little gems are Khmer Kitchen for Cambodian and nearby Los Gallos for Mexican, both of which are BYOB.
