Restaurants That Are Now Open For Dine-In In Pennsylvania

    Post-coronavirus, restaurants are slowly reopening in various stages — which started with takeout and delivery and has evolved into partial capacity for dine-in— in order to ensure a safe experience until the days of everyone operating at full capacity. We are just as excited as you to get out of our own messy kitchens and back into a restaurant enjoying food and drink crafted by someone else along with new and old friends. Here is a comprehensive list of restaurants that you can enjoy dine-in eating now in Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
