    1. I have an appointment in the Rittenhouse Square area tomorrow. What's a best bet for lunch at any of the restaurants participating in Restaurant Week?

        Davio's is always stellar. Butcher and Singer or DelFrisco's are also good options, expecially at RW prices.

        1. + 1 for LaCroix, I think their restaurant week lunch menu looks even better than the dinner! I'm going....rf

          1. Heading to Barbuzzo Sunday night. Can't wait!

            1. I'd also love a rec for lunch tomorrow in the Center City (preferably Rittenhouse) area - especially a place good for a solo diner. I was thinking about checking out either Square 1682 (had one pretty decent dinner with a few flaws there before, so I want to try it again...can I sit at the bar and get the RW lunch?) or maybe Le Castagne (ditto all of the above). Other picks good for a solo and not-too-fancy RW lunch in the area appreciated.

              I was in the city Tuesday and went to an old haunt, Fuji Mountain, which was listed on the official RW website as offering a RW lunch special but was not offered such a menu...later that day I saw the official site updated their listings and now Fuji Mountain was only doing dinner for RW. Oh well.

              The regular menu lunch bento box I had was quite subpar as well, to add to my disappointment. That place had been one of my main haunts during grad school and while I didn't have sushi Tuesday, the cooked entree I ordered (seafood teriyaki) was barely better than microwaved Chinese food (and nothing like I was expecting for teriyaki). Sad, because I remember the place being pretty good in the past. Maybe I just ordered horribly wrong...I normally order sushi or sashimi there but it was so cold and miserable out I wanted something hot to warm me up.
