Fun, interesting places in Center City

philly123 Jun 30, 2008 09:18 AM

I am hoping to try a bunch of new places this summer. I always end up at the same few restaurants. Price is no object, but I am interested in some BYOB's and casual places as well. I want to keep it in Center City/South Philly.

      Matyson, if you haven't already tried it. 19th Street, between Market & Chestnut. BYOB

      Scannicchio's, Broad & Porter. Nothing fancy, but good, plentiful food. My 2nd-3rd generation South Philly friends turned me on to it. BYOB

      Tiffin: 710 West Girard Ave. No atmosphere, but some of the best Indian food in the city.

      Las Cazuelas: Just down the street from Tiffin. Not cheap, but very good Mexican. BYOB
