Downtown Philly Recommendations - July 24-27

Seige | Jul 24, 2011 10:54 AM

Hi Philly Chowhounders! MSP Chowhound here. I'm in Philly this week and looking for some awesome recommendations for all meals, but particularly dinner. I'm staying at the Downtown Philadelphia Marriott and would like something in easy walking distance or a decent cab ride. Main requirements is that the places be local - no chains. I don't want to eat anywhere I can eat at home. Looking for the following:

- Breakfast (specialty pancakes or omelettes)
- Italian
- French
- Steak
- Cheesesteaks
- Farm to table/local sourcing restaurants
- Bakery - any place with specialty cupcakes or cookie
- Molecular gastronomy

I've already been to Reading Terminal Market, so I'm looking for recommendations outside of that. I'm pretty adventurous and am open to suggestions of your favorite places even if they don't meet the specific cuisines I listed.
