Want to meet for lunch on South St? PM, if you are interested!!!

As for ideas...
Morimoto was great when we had the mini-ChefTalk gathering. Jack's Firehouse is not very high-end but fantastic, nonetheless; honest, southern food by Jack McDavid (Bobby Flay's old partner on "Grillin' and Chillin." Le Bec Fin is the French experience; pricy, but often considered the best in the area. Pod and Budukahn are also Stephen Starr places (as is Morimoto) which enjoy stellar reputations. For casual, the City Tavern is Walter Staib's landmark place by Penn's Landing; fun, kind of kitschy colonial-style fare. For 'fun' eating, be sure to stop by Pat's or Geno's for cheesesteaks in the Italian Market. For that matter, eat your way through the Italian Market; great cheese, bread, dessert places abound.

Let me know if you need more. And, seriously, family would love to see you again; we can be up there in 30 minutes... let me know!

We have a table at Le Bec Fin, the staff used my kitchen this past summer!
Lunch would be great. As you can see, after Le Bec Fin, we would be needing cheap eats!!!!:crazy:
The quinticental cheese steak and a trip to the art museums.
I would love to visit Di Bruno Brothers too. (been getting their cataloge for years.)
Panini, you come to NY, we take care of you!:bounce:

Yipes, it's been a week!
We gave up the table at Le Bec Fin, timing was off for our arrival. (:( )
We did get to go to Mcormick and Schmecks for a nice seafood meal and great cocktails. Passage to India for really good Indian food - pretty slow service.
Marathon Grill for B-fast, the best!!!! They opened 45 min early for us!!!
Down Home Diner at the Reading Terminal for the best Yogurt, Granola, Scrapple and Coffee.
DiBruno Brothers is heaven! The food was beautiful, delish, the staff knew their stuff and very friendly. Like a kid in a candy store was I!!!

Oh yeah, there was art and some history too. Somting about a bell with a crack and some guy with a kite. I donno. :lol:

GREAT CITY! Beautiful to walk around in, fun to read and the museums WOW!
