Where should we go to next?

Would you share the last restaurant that you went to in Philly and said, "That's great, we will be back!" Ours would include Amada, Palace at the Ben, and Osteria. Thank you!

  1. It wasn't in Phiily, but it wasn't all that far. Remarkable dining experience. For a special occasion, well worth the drive.

      If you opt for Tallula's Table, expect to dine there no sooner than Spring 2008. I heard that they are booked until then.

      1. re: JanR

        That's ALMOST true. There might be a few weeknight openings between now and June, but weekends are fully booked, and no new reservations will be taken until January. That said, you can always do WONDERFUL take-out.

    2. I go to Osteria way too much. The lobster pasta last Sunday night was crazy off the hook!

      1. Ansill. We have been back there many, many times. Southwark too.

        1. re: Buckethead

          In Philly it would have to be Caffe Casta Diva.
          But the one place that we (and now our friends) all think is an incredible winner and only 1/2 hour away, is Moro in Wilmington.
          Doesn't it sound far? But it actually isn't any farther than driving to center city from most suburbs. (shhhh! Please don't tell anyone!) :-)

              I won't go on a rant, except to say I found Vintage to be snobby and overrated.

              Places we go a lot and would recommend:
              Sweet Lucy's
              Honey's Sit and Eat (but don't go for dinner!)

            2. The last three places for us would be:

              Karma, for the lunch buffet
              Caribou Cafe, for Croque Monsieurs and inexpensive champagne
