Suggestions for group dinner in Philadelphia
I'm traveling to Philadelphia July 20-24 for work, and would love suggestions for a great restaurant. I'm getting together about 10 of my colleagues for dinner.
Thanks for any advice you can provide!
Bar Ferdinand if you are looking for tapas. However I would recommend one of our wonderful Italian BYOs. Branzino on 16th street is perfect for a large group.
I agree with Jo, Branzino would be perfect for a large group. Lovely ambience, many menu options, everything very good.
Not everyone loves tapas, so it might be better to choose a place where everyone can order what he/she wants.
If you don't want a BYOB, you might consider Fork, at 3rd and Market. They have a new chef, and he is excellent. We've been there twice recently and were very pleased. (They also have a drink called the Whippet - vodka, grapefruit juice, lime juice, mint - that I love.)
If you do go for the tapas, I would pile everyone in cabs and go to Bar Ferdinand. Casual, comfortable, and so good!
