Business trip in Philly Thursday PM: any recommendations on South St
- SteviesBaby Oct 4, 2010 08:43 AM
Have a meeting in Philly on Friday AM, but staying over Thursday PM since the drive from Baltimore >PHL would be horrendous in the AM. Want to have a decent meal in the South Street area with great food and cocktails. Doesn't necessarily have to be high dollar, but I'm also not looking for a carry-out joint. AND this goes without saying: no franchise restaurants!
Thanks for the recs!
Assuming you mean the densely developed part of South St around 2nd St, check out this thread for ideas, it's the same area:
I'll call out Southwark for especially excelling in both food and cocktails.
Also, the area is only a few blocks from Old City, where you can hit Amada (tapas) and Zahav (modern Israeli), two of the best restaurants in the city. Both have interesting cocktail lists, as well.
