...not picky in the "no way am i eating that" sense, but picky in the sense that they were not impressed by recent visits to xochitl, il cantuccio, azure or north third... but they WERE wowed by horizons and tiffin. said they had nothing like horizons in NYC. this group is coming down for the mummer's parade new year's day... wanted to find a nice, special place for dinner. they want carefully prepared food, unique combinations, something hard to duplicate at home - and something that won't totally break the bank. i want to try something new out myself. i was thinking of trying pumpkin or chloe because i've heard good things, but are they something you'd put into a hard-to-obtain elsewhere category? any recent reviews or must-have dishes from those places? any other thoughts? we'll be in philly, but can travel modest distances. thanks!
