Philadelphia restaurant itinerary help

Betsypaige | Jun 8, 2009 08:13 PM

Hi all!

I'm planning a trip to one of my favorite cities for either this month or sometime in July and was hoping to get some comments/advice about my very, very preliminary restaurant list.

*Osteria - I'm from NY, so Italian is something I can get all the time, but I think I'd like to have a good Italian meal in Philadelphia as it seems to be a strength of the city. If not Osteria, where else would you suggest? Somewhere in the Italian Market? I'm open to anything.

*Tinto - I really want to try a Jose Garces restaurant and the one time I've had Basque cuisine, I loved it. There's another Basque restaurant as well that gets good reviews, Apamate......Also, is Amada Basque as well?

*Little Fish

*Zahav - I love Middle Eastern food

Plus - I will be spending some quality food time at the Reading Terminal Market. I've marked off these places (though I doubt I'll get to half of them, lol):

*Pancakes at Dutch Eating Place and other Amish yummies
*Roast Pork at DiNics

I love ice cream, so I need to make a special trip to the Franklin Fountain - that place looks fantastic.

Overall, I'd like to get a good taste of Philadelphia while I'm down here. Thoughts? Thanks so much!
