help! center city dinner tomorrow!

Help! I'm going out with friends tomorrow night in center city. (4 of us total) We are looking for a reasonably priced dinner. ($30-$50 per person) We're flexible with BYOB or non-BYOB. It doesn't need to be romantic or exceptionally creative...just good food and comfortable atmosphere. Any suggestions??

  1. Where in center city? There are dozens of great options. $50pp isn't much of a limitation.

      Somewhere within walking distance of Chestnut and Broad...preferably to the west of that area. I'd prefer closer to the $30 end if possible.

    2. I would try Fogo de Chau on Chestnut just off of Broad. The dinner is fixe price and the salad bar is amazing. Here's the web site:

        I'm definitely going to Fogo De Chao.

        1. We had a delicious dinner Saturday evening at Branzino, on 17th St. just above Spruce. It's BYOB. Great menu, and everything is good. Attractive place, good service. We like the upstairs room (just a few steps) but downstairs is also nice.
          It would fit your price range. You can order half of one of their delicious pastas as an appetizer, and the other appetizers, salads, soups, etc. are equally good.
          Then there's fish, poultry, veal dishes . . .whatever. We've never been disappointed.

            I second Branzino and throw in a Caffe Casta Diva for good measure, both BYOB's.
