Hi Philly Chowhounds,
We are coming to Philly for a conference next week (staying at Marriott downtown). I've never been to Philly (but husband has); we will not have a car. We would like to find bars/restaurants to have good drinks and appetizers (small plates, tapas, etc.) and/or great happy hour. We love great bars...looking for contemporary american cuisine, french, or italian. We are in our mid-30's, looking for a cool, fun urban scene and good food/drinks. I drink wine (by the glass) and husband drinks bourbon/whiskey and good beer.
We are also looking for authentic Philly haunts and Philly cheesesteak (but I think cheesesteaks are well covered on this board!)!
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
