Philadelphia Dining Guide - Philadelphia City


Recommended Posts

iPhone users, follow these steps to create a Philadelphia Dining Guide quasi-app:

1) Bring up this webpage.  
2) Tap this image on the bottom of the screen
3) Tap "Add Bookmark."

Voila! Your own free (kind of, sort of) app in less than 30 seconds!


Please feel free to contact me with any typos, suggestions, corrections, or comments.

In order to ensure future access to this dining guide, simply become a participating member of donrockwell.com.

Go back and read the previous sentence ten times: none of the restaurants covered in this guide serve a free lunch, and there is a very high likelihood that this guide will revert to being a reward for our participating members even though that means limiting readership (which, by definition, makes this website less popular). Our members - the ones who post here - are our life-blood, and they deserve to be rewarded for their efforts. It's very easy to sit back with a cup of coffee and read through all the content here; it takes effort to write and add content, and I want our participating members to know how much I appreciate them - I can't say it enough. Please register, post in the Please Introduce Yourselves thread, and then know that your simple actions have just supported this website which cannot go on without you - it takes less than five minutes, it's absolutely free, and your information is safeguarded and remains private. And if you're already a participating member, allow me to say thank you - the best thing you can do for us is to tell a friend about donrockwell.com (again, another simple action that only takes a few minutes).


Readers: After endless searching, I'm convinced that there doesn't exist a single good, well-delineated map of Philadelphia neighborhood maps on the entire internet - one that clearly marks the street boundaries of each neighborhood. Of course, there is overlap between neighborhoods, and the borders are fuzzy, but I couldn't find one single map that dared even attempt. If you know of one, or, if you see clear mistakes in my geographical listings, would you please write me and let me know? Thank you!

Please read the above paragraph: I need help with organizing this guide!
