i'm coming to visit a friend who is busy until later in the evening, so i'm on my own for dinner. looking for a foodie place, one with a bar where i can eat since a woman alone at a table seems so so so sad. and besides, i'll need a drink.
communal tables are fine.
last time i was in philadelphia, this california gal freaked out because people were, gasp, smoking at the bar. is this still legal?
friend says we'll be staying "downtown" but won't get more specific than that; guessing something near center city would be great. i'd rather spend my $$$ on dinner than on cab fare.
