We of the Philly sandwich tour article ( http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/722934 ) are going to be returning for 3 or 4 nights in Oct/Nov and want some more great recs. We're looking for:
-1 high end dinner. I'm talking reservations a month in advance, chef's menu, wine pairings, the whole nine. Vetri and Le Bec Fin sound intriguing. We'd like to try a really fine meal Philly-style.
-The best Malaysian restaurant. We don't seem to have any around here.
-The best food carts. We'll be there on a Friday, so any food carts that are open then will be a possibility.
-Any sandwich shops we missed the first time around (link to the article is near the bottom of the thread I posted, or google "Heroes, Just For Two Days"
-Any local faves, off the beaten path joints of any cuisine that we might miss without a rec
Also, what do people think of Square 1688 or whatever that place is called? We had a cocktail there last time and it looked great.
