fun, reasonably-priced dinner in philly
boston hound here, looking for birthday dinner recs for a friday night. i'm looking for a place with great food, a fun atmosphere, and entrees under $20. i'd also like to be able to make reservations since it will be a group of about 8 or so. ideally, the restaurant would be in or close to center city, where i'll be staying.
thanks in advance for your help!
Hmm...not sure about the prices, but here's a few places near where you're staying that come to mind.
Continental Midtown (fun, good drinks, sharing plates- type food)
Devil's Alley (bar with decent far)
Tir Na Nog (Irish pub)
Copa Miami (like the Copa mentioned below, but with a Latin twist)
Pietro's Coal Oven Pizzeria (good pizza and other Italian dishes)
Try Vietnam. Excellent food, everyone will find something on the huge menu (even the pickiest of eaters, I know from big group experience), good service, great space. Three floors plus a neat little relatively undiscovered lounge/bar upstairs with delicious lemongrass martinis. In Chinatown on N. 11th past Race (convenient to Center City). www.eatatvietnam.com
