Hey Philly Chowhounders,

My wife and I are coming to town from NYC for a "babymoon" weekend. We'll be arriving late Friday afternoon and leaving late Sunday. We're staying just south of Rittenhouse and won't have a car but are open to using transit or cabs if necessary.

We last visited three years ago and enjoyed a number of fine restaurants, including Amada (enjoyed it), Lacroix for brunch (wow), and Vetri (amazing -- seated us 45 mins late due to a party that stayed later than expected, but made up for it by giving us almost every dish on the menu that night). Also had a roast pork sandwich at DiNic's (awesome).

We're looking for equally excellent options for this trip. Not looking to break the bank this time, so places in Vetri's price range are out. But would be willing to go up to about $50 pp for food only before tax and tip. Alcohol options not important as she won't be drinking at all and I probably won't have much.

Places I'm considering include: Talula's Garden or Daily, Zahav (is it worth going if we can't get the Mesibah?), Vernick, Sbraga, and Le Cheri. That's just a sampling, and we're open to any ideas.

Also interested in the best desserts, both restaurant desserts and specialty shops.

Thanks!
