New to Philadelphia? Wondering what the restaurants are like here in the City of Brotherly Love? Well, with Philly being a city of bloggers, there are a lot of sites out there highlighting the city’s thriving restaurant scene. Few have been more successful, however, than my personal favorite:

Foobooz is devoted to bringing Philadelphians the best in “food, drink, gossip and deals” in the city’s restaurants. Its bloggers declare that “food and drink are keys to happiness, and there are few places better to indulge in other than Philadelphia.” They prove this statement by providing weekly updates on the best new eateries, bargains, and hidden treasures that this city’s restaurant scene has to offer.

To be honest, I have been a diehard Foobooz fan for about six months, and I check the blog almost daily for updates. It lets me know the latest in closings, so I can try out that restaurant before it shuts down for good. It also highlights notable openings, so I can keep up with what’s new and trendy in Philadelphia eating. Foobooz also provides info on local culinary events in the area, from Restaurant Week to Center City Sips, so if you’re looking for something fun to do you can always be in the know.

Their site even provides a demographic of their readers: young adults with college educations who often dine out (sounds like many Penn kids). The bloggers have compiled a list of their “Best of Philly” picks, along with event calendars and maps of every bar, eatery, lounge and café in the region. You’d be hard pressed not to find a good suggestion amongst the numerous posts.

They also provide fun little updates like “Eyeball Benders” that showcase an interesting photo of a local eatery so readers can test their knowledge of restaurant decor. All in all, whether you are a newbie to the Philly scene or a seasoned veteran, Foobooz is definitely worth checking out, especially if you want to keep up with the latest happenings. Also, it doesn’t hurt to look cool when you can make restaurant suggestions to your friends.
