Chifa or Melograno?

cavafan | Oct 14, 2011 01:11 PM

We're Brooklynites who just decided to go to Philadelphia tomorrow for the weekend. Having read through a lot of the messages here on favorite places, I was able to get last-minute reservations at both Chifa and Melograno for Saturday night. (No luck at Matyson.)

If it's between the two, what do people recommend? We have such good Italian in NYC that I'm leaning toward Chifa, only because it seems unique, and I've never been to a Garces restaurant. But it's really all about the food. I don't care about the price, and both menus appeal. Is there a clear winner here?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
