Leisurely Lunch?

Meeting friends from NJ (we are coming from south) on Saturday for leisurely lunch. Don't want to be rushed, nice place to sit, quality food/drinks. Convenient to I-95.

  1. Perhaps Bridget Foys? I think they do the brunch thing now on Saturdays (most places do) but it's a pretty varied menu. I wouldn't call it a leisurely meal, but I've never felt rushed either. The blood orange mimosa is delicious, and they have a decent selection of good beers and wines. You might be looking for something a bit fancier, but I've always enjoyed myself here. And I think the I-95 exit on Columbus Blvd is very close to this. I was also thinking of Fork or Farmacia in Old City, but I don't think they are even open till dinner on Saturdays.

      Fork is open for lunch on Saturdays (according to their website) and should fit the bill.

        I wish Fork was open for lunch on Satudays :( You could go to Amada though!

          Sorry - I had old info. Fork is not open on Saturdays.

              But we would go if they were (hint, hint in case anyone is reading this!)

    2. Try fergies pub, on sansom st. Very close, good food, drinks, etc.
