Philly Chow Needs Dinner Recommendation
- phillybakingqueen Apr 1, 2010 07:05 AM
Hi Bmore Chows -- I am looking for a non-touristy dinner spot, preferably in walking or short-cab distance from the Inner Harbor. Needs to be slightly kid friendly, but I would prefer an adult restaurant that will accommodate kids, not the other way around! Thanks :)
Pretty wide range here:
Thai Arroy on Light St, Iggies (pizza) on Calvert St, Asahi Sushi on Broadway, Mekong Delta (viet) on Cathedral, Abbey Burger Bistro just off Cross St. The first 4 are BYOB for the record. I know how people from Philly love BYO's!
1019 Light St, Baltimore, MD 21230
13919 Baltimore Avenue Suite 4, Laurel, MD
Mekong Delta Cafe
105 W Saratoga St, Baltimore, MD 21201
Abbey Burger Bistro
1041 Marshall St, Baltimore, MD 21230
Can't you get so-so Thai food or middling sushi in Philly? There are a wide range of options in a number of neighborhoods, but I'm going to ignore the walking request and assume that you'll take either a cab or water taxi. For seafood, I'd recommend the water taxi over to Canton, and then go to Mama's on the Half Shell. The upstairs dining room has always been very kid friendly. A taxi ride could get you to the Helmand, which has a more formal feel (so this depends on your kids), but is affordable and interesting Afghan food. For another experience you might not get in Philly, you could try Dukem for Ethiopian food. Depending on your itinerary, if you find yourself in Federal Hill and are up for a bit of a walk, Birches has always been good and has a few nice outdoor tables. And if you should find yourself in or near little Italy, while I can't think of a great restaurant recommendation Vaccaro's and Piedegrotta offer up great Italian pastries. Vaccaro's think enomrous and fun, while Piedegrotta think very high quality.
