Escape from Restaurant Week

barryg | Sep 7, 201107:30 PM

So a friend is coming in from out of town and wants to meet up at and eat a great meal with old friends. The parameters are:
Next Tuesday
7 people
no later than 8pm seating
Not too far from Center City

The problem is that it's Restaurant Week, and it's putting a serious cramp in our plans. We wanted to go to Zahav, but it's all booked up. Getting a large table at prime time during RW is not easy. So I started thinking about South Philly, QV, NoLibs and I'm having trouble coming up with something that can accommodate the larger group and is premier grub, which is what said friend wants.

I considered Modo Mio but we've been there too many times together and I was just at Monsu. Koo Zee Doo is closed. Le Virtu is a possibility though it might be a little too far south (a couple folks are coming from Fairmount).

Cochon crossed my mind but I haven't been there in years--anyone been recently?

Other ideas?
