Hi, all. Every year, I plan a dinner for a large group (50-60 people) who are visiting Philadelphia to attend a radio convention that's centered around WXPN. We're looking primarily for good food and service, innovative and hip (but not over the top), and middle price range. It has to be a place with a bar. Most people attending won't have a car, so we try to stay within reasonable walking distance and on the west side of the river (though I could probably convince the group to cross the river if we found the perfect place that was still pretty close). We also like to try somewhere new every year.
As you can see, we have a lot of constraints! Are any cool spots jumping to mind?
In past years, we've tried:
White Dog Cafe
How is City Tap House? Might it be worth crossing the water to La Calaca Feliz or Vernick or the Dandelion?
