A new trend is spreading across Philadelphia — restaurants are discovering diners’ heavy affection for small plates. This type of cusine generally encourages sharing and allows you to sample many more dishes than you would normally.

And better yet: many of these restaurants specialize in atypical flavors and adventurous ingredients. From pinxtos and tapas to contemporary American “snacks,” the selection is quite mouth-watering. Make a reservation as soon as you can.
