Weekend in Philly--yeah, I've read all the prior threads on the subject

famdoc | Jan 20, 201111:14 AM

We've got a upcoming weekend in Center City and, after reading several very helpful recent threads on this board, I've narrowed down my choices. Would like some Philly hounds to help me finalize my list.

Here are the "rules"
--two lunches and two dinners
--Saturday night dinner should be "special"
--we do not eat meat, but eat fish and all seafood
--would like at least one "ethnic" choice
--we like good wine (not necessarily expensive, however)
--should be walking distance from Center City
--total food tab for four meals: $600 or less

So, I've decided to try one Garces joint (ie, Garces Trading Co., Chifa or Amada), Zahav sounds like a great joint (so, do we do lunch or dinner?), have eaten at Lacroix in the past (loved it, but that was in the days of Monsieur Lacroix...can two have dinner and wine for under $200 and is it still worth it?).

I'm open to other suggestions and appreciate native Philadelphians input.
