Looking for an place to eat in Media or near Swarthmore college

  • 5

We are visiting Philadelphia for Homecoming this weekend and would like to take our son out to eat. We have been to a couple of places in Media, but wondered if there was anything new or noteworthy in that part of town.

  1. Hi, I used to live in Media and had friends in Swarthmore, and there are lots of restaurants in that area. Can you say a little more about what you're looking for - which meal, what type of food, etc.? Then I and others might be able to make some suggestions.

    1. Not new but Azie in Media is good.

        If you like Indian, I highly recommend Sheree Punjab.

      2. We had a really nice meal last night at Sycamore in Lansdowne, which is a few miles from Swarthmore. BYOB bistro with a really interesting menu. Servers were friendly. Chef came out to chat. About $100 for three of us. It's by far the best "nice" restaurant we've found in the area.

          I've heard that Sycamore is quite good! Need to try it some time. Maybe hubby & I will get a date one of these days soon... So close to us, yet we've never been there.
