Rec's for University City Birthday Lunch

Marissa Oct 2, 2010 03:34 PM

We are driving into town from DC for a birthday lunch for our Drexel U freshman -- will have the brother (12 yrs old) and sister (15 year old), both with pretty sophisicated tastes) in tow. Distrito looks to be on the list (we've gone to "upscale" Mexican in DC, such as Oyamel.) Should that be our first choice? Any other suggestions?

    In that area, Distrito has the best food and most fun atmosphere. I think it's really fun for a celebration, and the kids will probably like it, Another possibility, depending on when this is, is Jose Garces' newest place, opening soon in the Cira Center. It's called JG Domestic, and the proposed menu looks fantastic (at least to me). Here's some more info:

      Thanks. Coming in this Tuesday October 5, so we will need to keep JG Domestic on our next to do list. Now, we have to deal with Distrito only having 11:30 and 2:30 availability!
