West Philly Restaurants?

Donny | Apr 11, 2003 03:07 AM

Hey Chowhounds,

I'm looking for a restaurant to take my best friend out to before I am thrust into the real world via graduation.

I'd like to find a BYO-type restaurant somewhere either in UCity or WPhilly that's not a Penn student "destination" and is relatively inexpensive for someone on a student-budget (read: CHEAP ;D). I know of all the restaurants on 40th and Chestnut, as well as the more expensive options of LT/White Dog/New Deck/Penne/Pod ... any suggestions would be great.

I've heard decent things about Simsum (the new French-Med fusion place that replaced Bitar's on 40th St.) ... anyone know anything about it?

Thanks in advance.
