My husband and I are coming to Philly this weekend for a Saturday night show at the Theater for the Living Arts. We are staying at the Latham in City Center, Saturday we will definitely check out Reading Terminal Market and we will have Cheese Steaks Sat or Sunday.
We would like to have a nice dinner out on Friday - too late for reservations at many of the raved restaurants (Vetri/Django etc). Ideally we would like under 200 for two, casual/dressy (no jackets/tie), walking distance from the hotel (cab optional), open to all foods but something we wouldn't typically get in NY would be nice.
Meritage and Buddakan have been mentioned but I'm not sure if this Friday would be possible or what their cost is. Any other suggestions?
