2 Nights in Philly - Restaurant Recs for Seasoned Brooklyn Foodie

hchambers86 | Feb 23, 201506:45 PM

Hi Chowhounders,

If I could, I'd leave my wonderful home in Brooklyn for Philly in a heartbeat. It's one of my favorite cities in the world and I have a great time every time I get the chance to visit! Heading down for a weekend with two girl friends in March and would love some under-the-radar recommendations.

Last time I was there was for a romantic anniversary weekend with the boyfriend, we went to Zahav (loved), got nostalgic at Dimitri's (that shrimp pil pil...), debated the mertis of Sarcone's v. Chicki's, ate too much BBQ at Percy Street, and lived to tell the tale thanks to coffee at Joe. Now that I'm going back with two of my best friends I want to know:

Where should we go ? What should we we eat? What are some surprising spots that you've really loved? I'd like to do one "nice" dinner and one more fun casual dinner - brunch/lunch suggestions also very welcome.


Sarcone's Bakery,
