LA Hound to Philly ... Recommendations, Please!

Hammy | Aug 10, 2004 03:57 AM

Hello fellow Chowhounds!

I'm a Los Angeles Chowhound returning to Philadelphia for a couple days to visit friends (I graduated from Penn). My girlfriend is coming along and I would like to impress her with some fine eats from the City of Brotherly Love.

We have three dinner slots as well as a couple lunch/brunch options and I wanted your assistance! So far, the only definite is Django (which I went to last time and was blown away). This will probably be Friday, so any recommendations for Saturday and Sunday? I'm not on a strict budget but I would like to stay reasonably south of the century mark for most meals.

I was thinking maybe an Italian BYO one night and something trendy (Stephen Starr?) on the other night.

Lunch is covered ... between Geno's, Reading Terminal Market and the great variety of food trucks near Penn's campus, I won't have any problems there.

But, I do need help on the dinner venues!

Thanks in advance!
