Thanks so much for all your help for a venue near 30th. Now we are looking farther afield along the Regional Rail line in Manyunk and Montgomery County: Conshe, Ambler or other stops along the Lansdale/Doylestown line (R5?).
I looked into Cooper's Wine Bar. I am not looking for a seated dinner. Small plates with people mixing with plenty of seating, as needed, is more what we are looking for. I am shooting for $90 per person including tax and tip.
