Good, reasonably-classy, not TOO expensive restaurants in Philly?

I'm planning on going out to dinner tonight with a good friend of mine and I'd like to go somewhere nice. I'm not super-rich or anything (college student) but I'd like to go somewhere that's a little more upscale that won't totally break the bank. FYI, my friend has a gluten allergy so if there are any places that have gluten-free menu items or some other things that she could eat, that would be awesome. Transportation isn't a problem so long as it's reachable by cab, subway, or bus. Also, we're certainly not picky eaters so anything goes.

    1. This is late to help you for last night but there are lots of restaurants that deal with gluten allergies. Try this link

      We have enjoyed - Bindi, Sazon, Fish, Matyson, Bar Ferdinand, Branzino, Distrito, Trio, Legal Seafood, McCormick and Smick, Capital Grille, Zinc.

      The wonderful thing is that 15 years ago it was close to impossible to go out and enjoy a worry free meal. Thanks to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness thinks have changed.
