Can someone list the hotspots for me? And, also places to eat that are very good but not Le Bec Fin priced or the Four Seasons Restaurant? Thanks

    There is tremendous range below LBF and Four Seasons... actually LBF has a $40 tasting menu at certain hours now. But roughly how much do you want to spend? Alcohol?

      I'll bite - Bibou, Kanella, Zahav, Bistrot La Minette, choose a Garces place, Amis, Osteria, August (So Phila), Le Virtue, Paradiso (passyunk Ave)

        Just had an excellent meal at Sonata in Northern Liberty at 1030 N American St. They're a BYO with amazing food reasonably priced.

            how cheap are you looking?
            i agree with osteria and bibou.
            if you want really cheap, but tasty, chinatown has some amazing finds, including soup dumplings (!) and hand drawn noodles. of course, i'd be loathe to not mention my perennial favorite, the reading terminal market.. beck's cajun cafe is soooo tasty and costs sooooo little!

              Try the Italians: Melograno, Radicchio, Branzino, LaViola, Locanda del Ghittone. All are BYO; check to see who takes reservations.
