Center City--2 nights in April

small fry | Mar 19, 2009 09:35 AM


I've searched this board already and found a lot of good information about restaurants near our hotel. My husband and I (late 20s-early 30s) are staying at the Westin for two nights in April. We like to walk around and find cute places to have lunch and drinks and we prefer to have reservations for dinner both nights.

I've made a reservation at Devon Seafood Grill for Friday night and Branzino for Saturday night. I don't eat meat, but I will eat seafood and my husband eats both. This is kind of like a mini-vacation so we don't mind splurging, but don't really want to pay Vetri prices. I was pretty happy with both of the choices until I started reading lots of reviews about bad service at Branzino on other sites. Is this still a good choice? We really look forward to wonderful meals out when we travel, and like to focus on the kinds of experiences we don't have in DC, but bad service kind of ruins the experience.

We would definitely like one night to be Italian, but would be flexible as to the other night. Is there anything that I'm overlooking? Also, are there any not-to-be-missed breakfast/lunch/drinks places near our hotel?

Thanks for any suggestions you can give!
