I’m feeling a bit of Pennsylvania pride at the moment. It might be the well-deserved summer after that really long winter, or it might be the fun things I’ve done in PA the last few weeks, but I think it really has more to do with Pennsylvania earning top marks for its food by Open Table.

This online reservation service releases a list each year of “The 100 Top Neighborhood Gem Restaurants in America” and guess what? Pennsylvania tied for third (with New Jersey) with the most restaurants. California took the number one spot, while New York rounded out second place. Neighborhood gems are those wonderful go-to spots whether you’re in the mood for your favorite dish or just want a place to hang out with family and friends. They’re like home, only better. So who made the list in PA? Check out below and if you haven’t already been, make a reservation now.
