Sunday Eats in Philly?

AussieGirl Jul 5, 2006 02:34 PM

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.

              Caffe Casta Diva is a good choice, but it's not open on Sundays.

                I mentioned Cuba Libre in your other thread. It's open on 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.
