Hi -- I live in Brooklyn but my new husband lives in philly - we usually meet in jersey on the weekends but tomorrow night we want to have dinner in Philly.
We want: no smoking, quietish, not tooooo expensive
I've read some posts here and am considering: La Buca, Pasion, Salt, -- none of which we have tried or Valanni (we've eaten there before and liked it)
P.S. I am considering moving to philly - I've always lived in Bklyn, I love it there, and am kind of scared to leave my job, friends and the familiarity of NYC - I live in cobble hill and love the neighborhood. are there any transplanted Brooklynites who have made the move and are loving philadelphia? Thank you! (and please excuse the leap from restaurant help to life advice! I fell like chowhounds might understand)
