We're New Englanders visiting our son at college the weekend of Nov. 4 who have begun explore Philadelphia's great restaurants (much more exciting than what's around us). Were going to go to Kanella, but some other family members are coming into town and our party is now too big (6 or maybe 7) to get a reservation Saturday night. Am sending my son out with my parents to Bistrot la Minette on Friday but am striking out for our big Saturday meal. Have tried for a table at, e.g., Osteria, Zahav, Amada, Tinto (among about 10 other places), to give you a sense of the various kinds of places that would work for our group of somewhat different tastes (different enough that neither, e.g., a seafood-only place or a steakhouse would work). Chifa can take 6 of us, but can't give us a table after 5:45 (too early) if the 7th is coming, so I am looking for a place that will comfortably hold all of us at something like 7:30. We're commuting in from Ardmore, but my parents are staying in Center City, and we're looking for places in that area. Any suggestions much appreciated!
