Mildly celebratory lunch in CC West

gwebber Feb 4, 2010 11:57 AM

I'm looking for a non-threatening, not too expensive but still nice-ish lunch spot in CC West for my foodie self and some mostly non-foodie coworkers. We considered Village Whiskey, but the price is a bit higher than some people are comfortable with. Any other suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Smith's (next door to Matyson) isn't bad, nor is Devil's Alley (Chestnut, between 18th & 19th (?). Both have menus that would appeal to the meat-and-potatoes/burger crowd, and are OK on price. Another alternative that I've used for my staff of picky and not very adventurous eaters is Elephant and Castle.

      Tinto right next door has a good lunch deal. Matyson also has a reasonable lunch menu. You can get a little fancy but their burger is great and I think $10 or $11 including fries.
