Dinner in Art Museum/Fairmount

Looking for a place to get dinner after a class at the Philadelphia Wine School this Saturday. Nothing fancy, just great food (but not BYO). We're open to all types of food.
I've never gone out in the area and am completely ignorant to what's good.

  1. Most of the good places in the area are byo. We do Kite and Key at 19th and Callowhill. The new chef worked in many of the better restaurants in the area. They have a varied menu from pub food to full entrees. They have specials everyday. In nice weather they have outside seating.

        Osteria might be a bit intense after a 2-hour wine class.
        Anyone have any thoughts on the various gastropubs in the area?

          Actually I took a class at the wine school not long ago and found Osteria a perfect after-class meal, it was good practice. What direction are you heading after class? If you're heading south, Meme and Pub and Kitchen are both on the way.

            Heading back down to Center City afterwards. Thought I would use this chance to check out a place in the Art Museum area just because we've never gone out around there.
            Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.
