Center City dinner with a view?

PhillyStyle Jun 16, 2009 06:04 AM

My wife and I are going out for our anniversary, and we'd like a Center City choice that has a good view of the city. We're used to eating at ground level--does anyone have a recommendation for a nice romantic meal higher up?

    Have to agree you can't beat XIX's view.

      Thanks, everyone--XIX sounds perfect. I made reservations tonight--I think she'll love it.

      I second XIX at the Bellevue. Excellent food and service, beautiful room, plus the view from the 19th floor.

        And, on a warm evening, you can get a table on one of the small outside balconies (the view west is best).

        XIX at the Bellevue has a nice view.

          That will probably give you a better view of CC than Bistro St. Tropez.

          Bistro St. Tropez is in the Market Street Design Center (24th & Market), on the 4th floor. It overlooks the river, and in the evening the lights below are lovely. Here is the web site: http://www.bistrosttropez.com/
