Philadelphia Dinner for 25/Walk to Ritz Carlton

I am hosting a dinner for 25 in Philadelphia and need a good place within walking distance of the Ritz Carlton. Also, a private room would be great and one of my guests is in a wheelchair so it must be accessible for him. Any ideas? I have reservations at Bliss, but still waiting to hear on accessibility.

  1. if it's not too late you may want to consider Smith and Woletsky's. Even though it is part of a larger chain the food is good and it still has a local vibe

    1. 10 arts in the Ritz is an amazing restaurant and has a stunning private room. The food is excellent and so is the service.

        thank you - I tried to get into 10 Arts because it looked fantastic, but I received a voice mail saying the room wasn't available. Thanks for the idea, though.

      2. You might try Estia, lovely greek restaurant. I know they have private rooms downstairs and I believe there is an elevator down, although they could no doubt set you up 25 at one of the long tables in the main room.

        I find Bliss to be very cramped, although I've only eaten downstairs near the very loud bar.

          Estia is great and they may have a private room for smaller parties...

        2. All the steak houses on Broad St (Capital Grille, Palm, Mortons) have private rooms for 25.

            Indeed, that's the easiest option. Also McSchmick, I assume, has this capacity.
