Where should I eat right now? What are the hottest new places? What’s everyone talking about? Check out some of Philly’s hottest restaurants right now…

1: The Ugly Duckling

After gaining attention with Northeast Philly BYOB Blue Duck and then opening a Center City offshoot on Broad Street, Kris Serviss and Joe Callahan have just opened their third Philly eatery. The decor at The Ugly Duckling is more eclectic than at the other two, but those addictive duck fries are still on the menu. Both downtown locations serve alcohol.

2: Wiz Kid

Wiz Kid is open in Rittenhouse and serving up vegan versions of Philly classics, like the Wiz Kid Philly cheesesteak with seitan, mushrooms, and rutabaga “Whiz,” and a twist on the roast pork sandwich made with broccoli rabe. The counter-service spot, from Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby of Vedge and V Street, also offers alcohol and, for dessert, rich brownie-like treats dubbed Pot Holes.

3: Cheu Fishtown

Shawn Darragh and Ben Puchowitz’s Cheu Fishtown is now open on Frankford Avenue with fewer noodle bowls than Cheu Noodle Bar but more of everything else, including seats. The restaurant, set in a one-time police horse stable, has an eye-catching look, with a mural from street artists Yok & Sheryo plus bright patterns and funky scribbles adorning the walls, cushions, stools — even the bathroom sink.

4: Barcelona Wine Bar

The crowds are gathering at East Passyunk Avenue’s newest addition, a wine and tapas spot from Connecticut-based Barteca Restaurant Group. The restaurant, helmed by chef Paras Shah, is roomy, with a big U-shaped bar and plenty of outdoor seating on a greenery-surrounded patio. To drink, there are 3 oz. and 6 oz. pours of wine with an emphasis on Spanish grapes, plus cocktails and beer.

5: Walnut Street Cafe

The buzz is all about the pedigree of the Walnut Street Café team, which includes, among other notables, the trio of Branden McRill, wine guy Patrick Cappiello, and chef Daniel Eddy from the Michelin-starred Rebelle in New York. The sleek restaurant is part café, part dining room, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus.

6: Lincoln Financial Field

When summer starts to wrap up, there’s at least one place where Eagles fans can take comfort. Lincoln Financial Field is nevertheless home base for all Eagles home games, and the 69,000 seats fill up quickly. Naturally, the only way to fuel up before a big game is with a cheesesteak: Fill up on sandwiches galore at Tony Luke’s or John’s Roast Pork nearby.

7: Bar Amis

The Vetri Family’s Amis now has a sister spot. Bar Amis just opened in the Navy Yard — in what was Lo Spiedo — with several of the same plates as Amis, plus more casual bar food options like burgers, wings, nachos, and fries. If that’s not enough reason to get to the Navy Yard, know this: There’s an outdoor patio and a frozen drink machine.

8: Maison 208

Chef Sylva Senat’s long-awaited Maison 208 is now open and it’s dressed to impress, with an intricate mural, lots of big windows, and a retractable roof. The dining room, with its loosely French menu, and one bar are downstairs; head to the second-floor lounge for two more bars.

9: Blue Duck On Broad

Kris Serviss and Joe Callahan of Northeast Philly destination spot Blue Duck brought their talents to Broad Street. Blue Duck on Broad opened in the former Bop space, serving up lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. And unlike the original Blue Duck, this one has alcohol.

10: Love & Honey Fried Chicken

The long-in-the-works Northern Liberties spot from Todd and Laura Lyons is finally open, with a short menu of the ultimate comfort foods: fried chicken, cornbread with honey butter, mac and cheese, a few sides, and desserts you won’t want to skip, like sweet potato pie with toasted fluff. Take-out is the main transaction happening here, but there are counter seats if you want to stay awhile.
