The Philly BYOB beat out other restaurants making a name for themselves in places like New York City, Los Angeles and Austin.
Chefs Michael Fry, Samantha Kincaid and Jon Nodler opened Cadence in March 2018 at 161 W. Girard Ave. The restaurant serves new-American cuisine, with a focus on seasonal ingredients from the region, and has both à la carte options and a four-course menu, as well as a thoughtful nonalcoholic drink selection.
"Simple pleasures and serious food – for once, you don’t have to choose between them," states Food & Wine as for why Cadence won the top spot on their annual list.
The magazine praises Cadence for being a "feel-good restaurant" with "basic goodness that carries through in every exchange," and also states "Both savory and sweet are handled with a masterful command of acid here."
