Former Philadelphian Back for a Visit - Need Food Advice

hayleykh | Jan 5, 2011 08:13 AM

I lived in Philly when I was young and poor. Moved away in 2005. I am now going back for a weekend and need advice on where to eat. I have become a semi-foodie and would like to know where are must-eats these days. Still not rich, so I am not looking at Le Bec Fin here, but I am willing to spend a bit of dough. If you would be so kind, please give your input on the following:

1. Breakfast/Brunch options
2. Dinners (used to love La Viola and Monks. How are they these days? I am all about gastro pubs. Interested in checking out some of the neighborhoods that came up since 2005 like East Falls or Northern Liberties)
3. Cocktails (up for anyplace that I won't have to stand in line outside. I love anything from fancy cocktails to beer at dive bars)

Thanks so much for your time!
