Casual Dinner in Downtown Philly?

kwheless | Sep 1, 2007 07:07 PM

I'm going to downtown Philly next week for some meetings - I'm planning to take the train to 16th and JFK (Suburban station) and walk from there. I'm new to the area and I haven't been downtown yet. I was hoping to have dinner nearby, before taking the train home to the 'burbs.

I checked the online yellow pages to see what was nearby, but there are so many restaurants in the area, I'm not sure where to start. I was hoping to find someplace fairly casual, where I could eat early (I don't know when I'll be done for the day, but probably about 5 pm, or perhaps even earlier) and where I can eat alone without being stuck at a noisy bar.

Any suggestions? I checked the archives, but all the neighborhood names are confusing for a newbie.
