My husband and I will be in Philly over Thanksgiving weekend and are interested in checking out some new places. We left Philly in 2009 for Seattle for 4 years and are now in Baltimore. Our absolute favorite restaurant when we left Philly was Zahav, we even had our rehearsal dinner there 1.5 years ago. Our guests still talk about the lamb! Since we're left, the only new place we've tried is Federal Donuts, which was fun. We love casual food and craft beers (some regular haunts included Bridgid's, Local 44, Pub & Kitchen). Not so interested in fancy meals this time around and prefer to stay within the city. Many thanks!
