Can't miss in Philly?

Fatman | Oct 6, 2006 03:28 AM

I'm a visiting hound who has eaten like a king in your wonderful city, thanks mostly to this board. I'm about to head back home and wanted to make a last-minute appeal for any truly "can't-miss" eats for my last few days here.

I've had many meals at Rangoon, a few at Estia, one glorious night at Vetri, and stops at the North Philly Crab Shack and Hardena's, both from the Jim Leff post. I would teleport myself to Capogiro and I'd kill to move Carmine's, Delilah's, DaNic's, Primo, and Tony Luke's to my hometown. I had my first ever life-changing kaiser roll at Sarcone's last Saturday, and I would die happy if I could eat at Pietro's every Friday night for the rest of my life.

So this is partly a big thank-you to this board for so many great tips, and partly to ask: Are there any other hidden or not-so-hidden gems that it would be a shame to miss?

Many thanks, hounds, for your hospitality to a visitor. What a great city you live in.
