PHILADELPHIA, October 29, 2018 – The Infatuation, the restaurant discovery platform, launched today in Philadelphia, bringing its one-of-a-kind editorial style to the city. Through entertaining and always honest reviews and guides, The Infatuation will help Philadelphia-area residents find the best restaurants and bars for any situation.
As the city’s restaurant scene has expanded, Philadelphians have not been shy about sharing their enthusiasm for the diverse dining options throughout the area. After being inundated with tips and recommendations across its platforms, The Infatuation made the easy decision to set up shop in Philly, serving as a local resource for the city and surrounding area. The Infatuation differentiates itself as the definitive authority on dining in the cities it serves by using its transparent approach to restaurant discovery and exploration. The Infatuation editorial team dines anonymously, pays for its own meals, and provides readers with unbiased recommendations.
Readers can expect The Infatuation’s signature ‘Hit List’ of the city’s best new restaurants, extensive individual restaurant reviews, helpful neighborhood-specific guides, and original lists that tap into the idiosyncrasies of Philadelphia restaurant-going, such as “Where To Eat If You Can’t Get Into Zahav.”
“Philadelphia is one of the most exciting restaurant cities in the country right now, thanks to a number of unique factors ranging from the development of Fishtown to the BYOB culture to the city’s diverse population” said Hillary Reinsberg, The Infatuation’s Editor-in-Chief. “Philadelphians have been asking us to launch for the past few years now, and our local team has put together a product we’re thrilled to share with this city.”
Users can find Philly-specific content by visiting the designated section of The Infatuation’s website, following The Infatuation Philly via Instagram or signing up for its weekly newsletter for updates, reviews, guides, events and more.
