Stephen Starr: Philadelphia's Restaurant Scene Developing At Lightening Speed

el rey logo philadelphiaKYW's Hadas Kuznits sat down and talked with Stephen Starr at El Rey during preparation for its opening and, among other things, asked what he thought about Philadelphia's restaurant growth.

He had this to say:
I think Philadelphia is developing for restaurants at lightening speed. They're popping up everywhere... everywhere you can imagine: South Philly, Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Old City, here [Rittenhouse Square], I mean it's great. There's a giant boom going on in restaurants.
An assessment like that from Starr is good for Philadelphia.

Appropriately, El Rey and the Ranstead Room open today.
