Best of the Best 2023

Written by County Lines Magazine

See what you should sample from our local dining scene in 2023

This year we celebrate many new and notable additions to the local dining scene — almost 20 new restaurants, plus many expansions and even more new places to sip something special — along with our favorites in area towns. It’s been a very exciting year for local dining!

We’ve surveyed the local star — that’s Andiario, of New York Times fame — plus five quintessentially Chester County choices, and places where the food practically requires sharing on Instagram (and County Lines’ photo contest, check our social media). We’ve rounded up new places to enjoy craft cocktails, special coffee and the ambiance of a beer garden. And even places for bubble tea (for those who like that chewy kind of drink).

You’ll see we’ve highlighted exceptional dining choices in local towns — from Downingtown, Kennett Square, Media, Phoenixville and more spots along the Main Line and in Delaware. West Chester has grown into such a notable dining destination that we have a separate article in this issue chronicling its evolution.

So, savor our suggestions, look through the mouth-watering photos and make your list of places to share a meal with friends and family.

We hope you’ll discover your new favorites in these pages. And most important: dine local and dine often this year.
