One Free Night in Philly

Frank_Santa_Monica Aug 23, 2006 11:38 AM

I have one free night in Philly, a Saturday, and would love to have a fantastic dinner. I've been to the Four Seasons (Fountain Restaurant?) and Le Bec Fin. I can't decide if I should go back to one of these two, as I think these two are fabulous. Or, is there another place that's as good that I should try? Thank you for the help. I am visiting for work from Los Angeles, and staying at The Rittenhouse. By the way, how are the restaurants at Rittenhouse?

    Vetri is another highly rated restaurant. It doesn't have the ambience of the other two but the food was excellent when we visited several years ago.

      Depending on how much advance time you have to reserve, I would definitely second vetri.

        Vetri is excellent. Small, low-key, great chef.

        We have also had wonderful meals at Lacroix in the Rittenhouse. Lacroix himself has left, but as far as I know, it is still topnotch.

        It is difficult to get reservations at Vetri, so call right away if that's where you decide to go.
