Hey chowhounders, I am taking Friday off (I work in education and it's the last day before winter break and the kids are crazy!) and going into Philadelphia with my wife for a nice day around town. I rarely do such a thing so I don't know who is open for lunch. I don't wanna break the bank so places like Le Bec Fin, Striped Bass, Fountain, etc. are out (besides they're too formal for how we'll be dressed). So whatcha' think? I'm open to any area and any cusine. Am I right in assuming that probably all of Chinatown serves lunch? Besides there, how about some nice, cozy, little places where we can get a good meal? Thanks for all suggestions.
Also (and I have to phrase this correctly to pass the moderator), are there any festive, holiday things to do whilst in the city...where we could also get an after lunch bite to eat? Thanks again.
