Will be in Philly for dinner 1/11 and lunch and an dinner before a show on 1/12
Are Vetri and Osteria BYOB's? If not, could you reccomend a great italian restaurant that is, for Monday dinner. We will probably do Osteria for lunch on Tuesday.
Tuesday dinner: French, Tapas, Italian does not have to be BYOB, just solid food and the ability to have us out in 2 hrs.
Thanks in advance for your help
Vetri and Osteria are not BYOB. Branzino and Salento are two Italian BYOs that are very good. For Tuesday, Fond is a French BYOB that is very good; Amada is not a BYO but a great tapas place -- probably the best in Philly. No problem getting out in 2 hours at any of these places.
Two of the best BYOs in the city but unfortunately Modo Mio is closed on Mondays. If you can rearrange your schedule and don't mind making the short trek out of Center City, it is well worth it. In general a lot of places are closed on Mondays, make sure you check before you decide to go somewhere. Bibou I think is on vacation but even if they are open, it will be very difficult to get a reservation.
Bistrot la Minette is very good for French (not BYO). Amada is a no-brainer for tapas; it is one of the best dining experiences in the city.
