This is an oh so frustrating one to me.. looking for a nice place for lunch during the week after college graduation...on a Monday. My one thought is Matyson... a lot of the places that I really want to go only do dinner or aren't open on Mondays period. I don't want anything too extravagant, I'm not in the mood for any Starr restaurant and my parents aren't big tapas fans (ahem, Tinto). That makes it a bit harder, but I think you guys are up for the challenge.
We can go further than Center City... say, South Philly, but again, not sure about the lunch aspect of it and places being open.
Thanks ahead of time!
