My boss has asked me to make reservations for her and her colleagues at a conference in Feb. near the 12th & Market Marriott. I lived in Philly ten years ago (12? yeesh, time flies) and often reminisce about the restaurants. That being said, she wants a place that isn't "too loud", takes reservations and isn't too expensive. That takes off most of my favorites.
I loved Tequila's when we were there, but I was also a lot younger and went with big crowds. Also loved Vetri, but I think that's going to be priced out.
What recommendations would you have? To her credit, I offered Mccormick and Schmick's and she said she'd prefer something local.
Groups will be 4 one night and 5 another, so that's not too hard (so glad it's not 20 people).
