Philadelphia - Matyson And Other Questions

JudyHP | May 10, 2006 10:12 AM

My husband and I are coming to Philadelphia for our 11th wedding anniversary in the beginning of June. We will just be there for the weekend -a quick getaway. First time visit for both of us. Based on what I've read on the board and what our likes are, I have made a dinner reservation for our anniversary dinner at Matyson. Here in Boston we are not allowed to BYOB, so I would love some advice on BYOB etiquitte. How does that work there? Is there a wine store nearby the restaurant that you recommend? Does the waiter uncork and pour for us? Do you hand the waiter your bagged wine when you are seated? Do you include extra in the tip for wine service? Thanks for the advice in advance. Where is a good place to have a nice lunch on Sunday? We are planning to go to the Reading Terminal Market on Saturday and expect we'll eat lunch there. Anything not to be missed? We love all cuisine, including seafood (raw and cooked). Big fans of street food also! Thanks in advance for your help! Can't wait to see your city!
