    I recently had a big plate of them at Funky 'lil Kitchen in Pottstown and they were wonderfully tender and delicious. Maybe not as good as the ones I had a few years back at Che Panisse, but pretty darn close.

      The Pond in Radnor braises them to dense, savory richness.

        Interesting question Layla529, I'm curious to see the responses. I LOVE short ribs, I've had them maybe 6-8 times in restaurants. I can tell you I loved every one, but no matter how different the menu description, all of them have tasted alike. I may be off here, but I haven't detected much variability. Oh, but if I had to give you a best, I loved Matyson's version, but that was a couple years ago.

          Recently had them at Bliss in C.City and they were quite good

            They've always been a specialty of Jake's in Manayunk, but I have never tried them there.

          Had really good ones a couple of weeks ago at Society Hill Hotel, but they may have been a special. Call first

              If you like short ribs, try the short rib flat breads at both amada and audrey claire. they are incredible.

              I had short-rib ravioli at Ava. They were so good. They were a special, so I am not sure if they still have them, but if they do, by all means get them.

                I just agree, the short ribs at Jake's are to die for!
