Dinner in Philly
Hi all -- I'm looking for a nice dinner spot to take out some visitors in two weeks. I just booked at Matyson, but a friend who went a few days ago said she thought it was a bit just-ok. I'm also considering Zahav, Modo Mio, and maybe Bibou (if I could still get reservations at these places). I've taken these guys to Supper and they liked it a lot, and I suppose what I'm looking or is something equally bold/adventurous, rather than just fancy. I've eaten at Zahav a few times and I know it's solid, but for that very reason I thought I'd take the opportunity to try something new. Also considered Little Fish, which is a favorite of mine, but there's a non-fish-lover among us.
Any views on the places I mentioned, or new ideas, would be much appreciated! Thanks...
Favorite spots for dinner in Philly:
Any of these places will offer something a little more adventurous than the standard Philly Italian BYO.
I've personally always loved Matyson and think it's a great choice if they'd like to try one of Philly's BYOBs. But Melograno would be a nearby BYOB alternative, albeit strictly Italian.
My pesonal experience with Tinto, as suggested elsewhere here, was pretty meh and I would say Amada would likely be the best choice of one of Jose Garces places for something along those lines.
