Sunday Eats in Philly?

Looks like a lot of good restaurants like Matyson and Marigold Kitchen are closed on Sundays.
What are good Sunday choices?
If you're looking for a BYO open on Sunday, Bistro 7 would be my choice.
Other great, but non-BYO Sunday options are Ansill and Amada--both serve small plates/tapas.
Here's a hot new suggestion, but not in town: Taste of Portugal, on Adams Ave, in a strip mall near a Mc Donald's--essentially corner of Adams and Tabor.
I heard raves about this place on Chowhound, and can't wait to go there, as authentic Portugeuse places have been in short supply. Definitely open on Sundays--lots of parking.
London Grill has a great Sunday brunch with outdoor tables for people watching. Rembrandt's is pretty good too.
BYOB's open on Sunday:
Branzino, 17th St. just north of Spruce - excellent food, lovely atmosphere.
Tre Scalini - in South Philly, one of regular favorites, consistently good. Call ahead, they seem to be doing some renovations to the building.
Radicchio, 4th and Wood - excellent, but doesn't take reservations.
Even though it's easier to get into these places in the summertime, it is still advisable to make a reservation.
Radicchio tops the list. I am not sure if Caffe Casta Diva is open on Sundays but that would be a good choice too. We like Figs in the Art Museum area. Good medi byo and they are open Sundays.
i've mentioned fish tank on main in manayunk before - they should be noted for their sunday brunch special, a spinach and tomato fritatta - YUM. :)
Lolita! It's open Sundays and takes reservations Sunday-Thursday. BYOB... or BYOT, bring your own tequila and buy a pitcher of their fresh margarita mixes.
I'm a fan of the Moshulu brunch. I wouldn't call it spectacular, but the combo of the boat and good food makes me a fan. If you go, I recommend reservations.
Also, I'm a fan of the Cafe Sud brunch in the S. Philly/Queen's Village area.
