Visiting in May, which reservations do I need to make ASAP?
I'm visiting Philadelphia in mid May and wonder if there are any hard to get reservations I should start thinking about ASAP?
Restaurants I have enjoyed in the past:
Per Se in NYC
Eleven Madison Park in NYC
French Laundry in Yountville
Le Bernardin in NYC
Moto in Chicago
Depending on if you are here on Wed-Sun, I would suggest Bibou. But note that it is cash only and bring your own wine.
Also if you are okay with high prices, The Fountain Room at the Four Seasons hotel is an elegant place to dine.
Vetri is the only place on par with the restaurants you mention and along with Bibou (which while different than the above is still excellent) two for which you should seek reservations far in advance.
