Parents 35th Anniversary Dinner - Philadelphia

cbean | Nov 16, 2009 06:03 AM

Good Morning Chowhounds -

My parents will be celebrating their 35th Wedding Anniversary this month, and my sister and I booked them a hotel in Philadelphia for the weekend after Thanksgiving to give them a mini weekend getaway. The hotel is on Locust & 13th - pretty much between Rittenhouse and Washington Square. (I want to mention that I am not too familiar with Philadelphia, nor are my parents.)

I would like to get some restaurant suggestions for them - dinner is my main concern, but perhaps a place for brunch as well.

As much as my mother enjoys a fine dining experience, my father is an Italian-American from Brooklyn and is not so much impressed with a restaurant that leaves him hungrier than when he arrived. We'll just say that my father likes a full meal... So I'd ultimately like to find a middle ground - if any. A byob may be too much to ask for also?

Thanks for any help you can give!
