Dinner in NE Philly w/ a picky grandmother
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm running out of places to eat with her and I can't do another meal at Famous Deli, Bennies, or any other jewish-style deli/restaurant. She's an old school Jewish grandmother who leans towards corned beef, whitefish salad, knishes. We've gone to Country Club, Franks, Jack's. She's not into ethnic foods.
I am so all over this! I grew up in NE/Bustleton and go back to visit my mom often. Stein's in Krewstown is indeed a fantastic recommendation for good Jewish food.But I understand you've had your fill! I'd also recommend Gallo's on the Blvd, Nichol's seafood on Castor, and Kelly's seafood on Bustleton.
Just for a change of scenery, but sticking with Jewish/diner food, there's Tiffany's at Welsh and the Blvd.
Of these suggestions, Gallo's is my favorite. The last time I was there I had fantastic crab cakes (with salad and 2 sides).
