Hi. I have been hired to write a guidebook to "off the beaten path" places in philadelphia, and just stumbled onto this wonderful web site. In asking around about restaurants...I've been inundated with all of the top spots you hear about...the striped bass/avenue b/white dog, etc. I will certainly include some of those, but I also need more reasonable places. I would love any suggestions for mid-price range restaurants, from south philly to west philly to north philly to chestnut hill and germantown. The more specific the better, i.e., ambiance, service, favorite dishes, anything you can think of. I would really appreciate the help. I wish I could eat at all these places, but the publisher isn't paying the tabs! Thanks!
