hey guys-

Urgent help needed.  I'm going down to philly Wednesday-Saturday with my family to check out apts and the area.  Can the philly folks recommend two or three restaurants that are must visits (especially on the parents' bill!)?  Preferably one of them being an Italian place, if possible.

Thanks!


italian-- my new favorite italian is osteria-- http://www.osteriaphilly.com/-- its about 4 blocks north of city hall. not a typical restaurant area, but not hard to get to. totally worth it.
 
japanese-- morimoto -- http://www.morimotorestaurant.com/

"modern asian"-- buddakan-- http://www.buddakan.com/

gourmet mexican fusion- lolita-- http://www.lolitabyob.com/lolita/ (my favorite restaurant in town and, IMO-- best tenderloin

steak-- barclay prime, http://www.barclayprime.com/. the 100$ cheesteak is tasty (kobe beef, butter poached lobster and gruyere, with a small bottle of veuve) but prob not worth 100$

west philly byo-- marigold--  http://www.marigoldkitchenbyob.com/

my favorite center city itialian inspired BYOs: mercato -- http://www.mercatobyob.com/ -- and melograno  (make sure you get the papardelle tartufate-- amazing) 2201 Spruce St (215) 875-8116

Beers and burgers (and mussels)-- Monks-- http://www.ripsneakers.com/monks/

spanish tapas-- Amada--http://www.amadarestaurant.com/

radio's are all good recs; in addition if you're in the rittenhouse/ fitler sq area i'd add:

Tinto (by the owner of Amada): http://www.tintorestaurant.com/

Twenty Manning and Fri Sat Sun (less conceptual than some of the others, but good if your parents like more mainstream places)

Alma de Cuba: Stephen Starr's take on Latin cooking

Tequilas: really incredible and somewhat pricey Mexican

Meritage: often overlooked, this place has AWESOME classic food.  very parent-friendly atmosphere.
I am officially a law school graduate : )

We're leaving tonight, so we're just missing you.  Sad!  Hopefully you won't get as much rain as we did.

Also, if the apartment we're trying to see today falls through, you and I may be neighbors.
