Out of all the outstanding restaurants in the Philadelphia suburbs, there are some that really stand out, seven of which are located in Chester County, writes restaurant critic Craig LaBan for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Bangles in Downingtown attracts adventurous diners with its delicious cuisine. For some real spicy delights, try the Chettinad curries or Hyderabadi biryani.

The Birchrunville Store Café is another favorite. The idyllic French BYOB offers delicious meals, including stuffed roast pheasant or fresh fish with wild mushrooms.

La Peña Mexicana in Kennett Square offers the flavors of Mexico’s northern coastal state of Guerrero. In particular, the tender chicken stewed in soulful guajillo salsa should not be missed.

Restaurant Alba in Malvern pairs an aromatic wood grill with Northern Italian flavors, with fresh pasta specialties such as ravioli stuffed with rabbit and prosciutto.

Talula’s Table in Kennett Square has a year-long wait list for its 12-seat country table. Its 10-course seasonal tasting menu will impress even the most demanding of pallets.

Teresa’s Next Door in Wayne is an intriguing combination of a Belgian bar with a Mexican twist. Here, you enjoy items like its delicate waterzooi seafood stew.
