brunch/lunch by Poe House

Hi all

I just wanted to thank all of you for your help in my previous thread. I've gotten some fantastic advice ...........Now, I have a more specific question.

I will be going to the Poe house on the Sunday that I am in town. I intend to go to the Headhouse Market afterwards.......I was planning to try Los Taquitos de Puebla at the Market, but now that I know there is an actual restaurant in the Italian Market, I can have lunch there when I check it out on the Saturday. So...I will probably want to eat something before venturing to Headhouse. I've read a million and a half raves about Paesano, but it's closed on Sundays, so I will need to grab a bite to eat there (I expect to be hungry by the time I finish with the Poe House). I know there are several gastropubs in the area - I'm not a beer drinker, so would any of those places (Standard Tap, etc.....) be wasted on me? Is the food good enough for me to make a pit stop there even without the beer?

On Paesano's......is it good enough for me to make a special trip there? Is Northern Liberties within walking distance from Rittenhouse Square/Center City/Independence area or would I need to take a cab? FYI - I have no problem making special trips for food as I do it all the time.

Thanks!
