    Philadelphia's New Crop Of All Day, Every Day Eats
    Hunger doesn't keep to shifts, so neither do Philly restaurants. Philadelphia has long had an all-day-and-night dining scene. But until recently, that scene was limited to diners and those famous cheesesteak spots. Today, in neighborhoods throughout the city and region, upper-scale restaurants have adapted meal service to a more flexible schedule.
