My BF and I will be in Philly on Monday for lunch, dinner and drinks (visiting from LA, but we both lived in Philly 4 years ago. Since we don't get to spend much time in Philadelphia anymore, we want to make the most of our food consumption while we're there!
I'm thinking RTM for lunch, but am open to other options - is Good Dog a solid choice for lunch or do you have other suggestions?
For dinner, we would like someplace that has excellent food (obviously) and is casual (jeans). it doesn't matter if it's BYO or not. Maybe something along the lines of Amada, Django, etc. Matyson seems like we wouldn't be comfy in jeans?? (would like to get a pre-dinner drink someplace...either a pub or wine bar like Tria, etc.)
Type of food - anything (however, we're coming from LA, so please don't recommend Mexican since we can get plenty of it out here! Also, no Steven Starr, overly commercial or chain restaurants)
Cost - not an issue - as long as the food is great and we can wear jeans, we'll pay for it!
Location - Rittenhouse/Old City/Northern Liberties are all options...we just really want to enjoy great food in Philadelphia!
