Musi BYOB, which opened earlier this year in the Pennsport neighborhood of South Philly, won a spot on Eater’s national list of the best new restaurants in America.
Musi is an intimate BYOB restaurant in South Philadelphia where chef Ari Miller pioneers relationship-based cuisine, focusing on the farmers, foragers, and makers supplying the goods for his peak-season and flavor-packed plates. Chef Ari Miller is an alum of Zahav and High Street on Market.
Named for chef Ari Miller’s legendary fishmonger in Tel Aviv, Musi serves relationship-based cuisine. Each plate is intentional and represents the kitchen’s relationships to the farmers, foragers, makers and artisans who inspire with unique products and one of a kind collaborations. Musi’s small, daily menu offers guests the opportunity to choose a few plates on their own or simply let the kitchen cook for them.
Musi also made PhillyMag’s list of 50 best restaurants in Philadelphia and received high praises from Craig Laban, though he did call the cramped space “utterly charmless.” Personally, we think Craig just doesn’t quite get the South Philly charm.
