Vegetarian NYCer in Philly for the weekend - need recs

scarlet starlet | Mar 28, 2009 11:14 PM

I'm going to be in Philly this coming weekend - I'll be getting in Friday evening and am leaving Sunday evening. I'm staying at the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing (my fiance has a conference there) so I need recs for places that meet the following criteria:

1) Within the city center or can be reached fairly quickly by subway/light rail. I'll be doing a lot of walking around during the day so obviously am open to recs for places near the art museum and Center City West area. I'm only in town for a weekend so I don't want to spend too much time traveling to get to places to eat.
2) Vegetarian friendly. I'm going to try to eat at Horizons, but I don't need to go to places that are exclusively vegetarian - just places that have at least a few options for me.
3) Not too expensive (we're saving that for Horizons). Good, cheap (or just not really expensive) eats are what I want :)

We're trying for Horizons on Saturday night, but as a backup, any other nice (but not Vetri nice) dinner recs would be great, as would lunch and Sunday brunch suggestions.

Also really helpful would be someplace quick and cheap to eat (or pick up food) between the Liberty Bell (which is where I'll be dropped off by the bus on Friday) and the Hyatt because I will likely be starving and refuse to pay for room service or wander the streets carrying a duffel bag while in search of sustenance.
