Hi Philly board-
I'll be in town in November for a couple of days, staying near University of Pennsylvania. I've never been to your city before, so I'm pretty excited. I'm adventuresome, and willing to eat anything, so no restrictions. I'll be solo, so my only preference is that the restaurant feel as un-awkward as possible in this situation. No real price restrictions, either (knowing that solo dining usually means fairly casual).
I'd like the keep most of my meals within walking or a reasonable cab ride distance away from the Penn campus, but will also be exploring the city at least one day, so if there are some great spot in areas that you think I should check out during my trip, I'm all ears.
Sorry for the vagueness. I'm a CH regular, so I know how obnoxious this is, but the trip came up suddenly, and I have an open mind...any ethnicity, and anything from a food stand/truck to a multi-course meal. Thanks.
