Philadelphia Marathon recs - November

thenurse | Aug 27, 2007 10:11 AM

Hi there,

Visiting Philly November 16-19th (4 of us) and need some great food recs for pre and post marathon.

Specifically looking for:
Dinner - not necessarily pasta - rice/noodle recs will do (ie. Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian, Japanese) for 2 nights (Fri and Saturday)
Casual breakfast/cafe/bakery for Saturday and Monday
Lunch for 3 days - casual, fresh, not expensive.
Grocery Stores (I'm aware of the Whole Foods on Pennsylvania) Anything interesting relatively close to the hotel? Reading market maybe?

Also, local favorites OTHER than Cheesesteaks, I'll do a separate search for that.

Most importantly, post-race brunch on Sunday, hopefully around noon.

We are staying at the Comfort Inn downtown/historic, on N Chris. Columbus Boulevard.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
