Fancy Celebratory Dinner in/around Philly

lizlipskrb Jun 12, 2008 10:06 AM

My boyfriend just passed the CPA exam, so I need to pay up on my promise of an awesome night out at a GREAT restaurant. I want to make it really special...somewhere that we wouldn't normally go. I'm willing to spend a little...but maybe not over $250 total (including drinks, wine, tip, etc.) We're total foodies, so anything goes! I was thinking Barclay Prime or another Starr restaurant. Any suggestions or things to stay away from??

      If he'd love at great steak, then I think Barclay Prime is the place to go in Philly.

        Tell us what he likes, but seriously? Nothing wrong with Le Bec Fin for something like this.

          Congratulations to your boyfriend. You will be able to have a fine dinner at Le Bec-Fin for $250 (inclusive of tax and tip) especially now that the restaurant is a la carte. I would suggest checking out their menu online.
