Help with a whole night of delicious, mellow celebration

My husband and I will be in Philly this Saturday night, unexpectedly, to celebrate his birthday. We're going to stay at the Ritz-Carlton. We need a GREAT, intresting, not loud restaurant. My budget would be about $250.00 for dinner (including drinks), and it would preferably be a place that also has a good beer selection and isn't pretentious and too serious. I just want amazing food; that's not too much to expect, right? Then we need some cool, mellow, possibly romantic bars to hop to. Jazz, or blues would be a huge bonus. We will have a car, but I don't really want to drive all over the whole city since we will be drinking. I know NOTHING about Philadelphia, and since we won't be arriving until about 4:30 Saturday and we'll be leaving by noon on Sunday, I don't have time to find out a whole lot. I'm relying on all you Philly Chowhounders to help me out. Oh, and will I even be able to get a reservation at this late date? I'm nervous!
