  1. Fork Restaurant on Market St. Within walking distance from your hotel also.

    1. 3 questions:
      Will you have transportation within the city?
      How old are your children?
      What is your budget?

      Without knowing that here are some ideas:

      Chloe (in your area, delicious)
      Reading Terminal Market (kid haven)
      Standard Tap (good for kids, especially early, great local beers)
      Franklin Fountain (for ice cream in your area, great for kids)
      Amada (make reservations early, in your area)

        yes, we will have our van. my kids are 7 and 11 and our budget would be moderate to expensive. thanks for the ideas. i'll go look at the menus now.

          Amada would be a great choice for may be bored though due to adult venue

      2. Society Hill Hotel Restaurant at 3rd and Chestnut has everything from Sandwiches/Burgers to entrees and would be fine with kids
