Any good Restaurant suggestions near the Walnut St Theater?

Going to the Walnut St.Theater in Phila this Saturday and looking for suggestions of any kind of restaurant within walking distance of the theater. BYOB would be a plus. Thanks!

      and, Kanella (Cypriot), Mercato (Italian), Bindi (Indian fusion), Zavino (artisan pizza and pasta). All BYOB except Zavino which has a very affordable wine list.

        Kanella would be my pick. It's one of the best BYOs in the city. Mercato is very good too. Zavino makes some excellent pasta dishes, the pizza (strangely) is not really the best reason to go there.

          Another rec for Kanella, a big plus that they take reservations... if there are still reservations available for Saturday night. It was discussed on other threads that Mercato may take reservations for pre-theater.
