Philadelphia Trip

JT | Sep 23, 2002 09:37 AM

Hi, I'm from DC and need help finding places to eat on a trip to Philadelphia this week.

I'm driving from Allenwood down to Philadelphia and then staying in Philadelphia Thursday & Friday nights. Mapquest tells me I'll be going down I-80 and I-476. In any event, I need to find:

1) A place to eat on the way from Allenwood to Philadelphia. I'm going to guess that diner/barbecue/country type food might be the best thing to look for.

2) A place to eat Thursday night. I'm trying to meet up with a couple college buddies, and figured a steakhouse type place might be good. Maybe 15-25$ entrees? I don't really care where in Philadelphia, although I'm staying at the Sofitel, so somewhat nearby or accessible by mass transit might be good.

3) A quick place to eat lunch near University of Pennsylvania, where I'm going to be at a conference.

4) A more romantic type place Friday night for when my girlfriend gets in town. Someplace in an active/interesting part of town might be nice [like Adams Morgan or U-Street in DC?]. Again, 15-25$ entrees.

Any and all suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
