Recs for Saturday lunch in Philly

lisavf | Jan 16, 2007 05:36 PM

My husband and I are coming to town for the weekend, staying at The Four Seasons. Thanks to the great info I've culled from other posts, I have most of our dining itinerary set:

Friday dinner: Matyson
Saturday dinner: Brasserie Perrier
Sunday brunch: Patou

I'm stuck for Saturday lunch, though. We're probably going to do some shopping up and down Walnut Street, but we're not tied to that. We don't mind driving a little or taking a cab, but not so far that it takes us away from shopping for too long (i.e., we'll stray to Old City but not Manayunk). I know I've done myself a bit of a disservice by picking two places for dinner that have Saturday lunch, but that's what I've picked, and I'm sticking with it.

My short list right now is Lakeside Chinese Deli, Imperial Inn, and Happy Rooster. My criteria is something more than sandwiches and salads, no Mexican, Indian, Thai (I'm not bit on spicy), no chains. I want to have a list so that no matter what we're doing, when we get hungry we can stop for lunch and know where we want to go. If anyone can help me, I know you good folks can!
