Foodie bachelorette dinner in Philly!
I am searching for a great place to take a very food conscious bride-to-be and 11 other ladies for a fun bachelorette dinner. Ideally the locale would be BYOB, but I'm open to all suggestions. The party is at the end of August, so I do need to hurry up and make a reservation. Some limitations are obviously the ability to make a reservation for 12 (it could be a few less, but that is the max). Some places I have already nixed--Matyson (no groups larger than 6), Mercado (the bride eats there all the time), Chifa (the bride isn't interested).
I'm most concerned with it being a fun atmosphere, but the food is important, too. She is kind of particular, so no Steven Starr recs please. I realize I'm narrowing down the field quite a bit, but I'm hoping my fellow chowhounds can help!
Thanks in advance!
