Birthday Dinner for women in their 20's in Philadelphia

Any recs for *fun restaurants for a group of women (1 is vegetarian)? We'll be going on a Tuesday night, and want a place with GREAT ambiance and equally good food in either Center City or old city. Nothing too fancy. Your recs would be really appreciated.

  1. Amada- tapas is always more fun with groups!

    1. We recently celebrated at Jones (7th and Chestnut). Very cool place and reasonable prices... modern twist on comfort food. Afterwards, we had drinks at the Las Vegas Lounge...super cheap and a lot of fun.

      1. Don't know your budget, but Amada could get expensive. How about Bar Ferdinand in Northern Liberties?

        1. I love Amada, but I think it's too expensive for this group. How's parking by Bar Ferdinand?

            parking isn't tough at all, that far north on 2nd street. i was in bar ferdinand the other day - very friendly place and garlic shrimp to die for. the $10 white wine (can't remember its name but i think it was the only $10 one) was among the best i have ever had. need to go back to get its name... and a few more glasses.

            i still prefer amada (bar ferdinand, where is your gazpacho?!) but frequent BF more often because i live around the corner!

          2. Not too bad. If you're a larger group, make a reservation.
