At some point months in the future, I will likely have the opportunity to take my grandmother out to dinner in Philadelphia. I was born and raised (and live) in Los Angeles, and love traditional Philly food...probably more than she does. I always end up dragging her to Nifty Fifty's or Reading Market against her will. This next visit, however, I would like to find something that she could really love.
She values service and decor over food, and judges a restaurant more than anything else by how fresh and hot the bread is when served. She is highly, HIGHLY unadventurous - probably her favorite place that I have taken her is the Country Club Diner in NE Philly.
With those confining requirements in mind, can anyone recommend a more formal, more "luxurious" restaurant?
