Lunch near Drexel campus?

Taking son on a college visit this Saturday and wondered if there are
any great lunch spots near the school. Can be chic or funky — just good. Thanks so much.

    Distrito! Modern Mexican small plates. Fantastic tacos and nachos. They have a dining room upstairs and a Cantina downstairs (a bit more casual - I recommend this for students). Plus they have lunch specials (though they may not have these on the weekends). I've only been for dinner, but it was really good. Reservations recommended.

      On Sat and Sun Distrito is doing a new brunch menu; it's $20 prix fixe and you choose two courses. You can see the menu on their website: http://www.distritorestaurant.com/

      They also have a $10 "kegs and eggs" option where you pick one of four plates and get a beer... might not be the most appropriate option for a college applicant.

      Friends of mine went last week and they said that an la carte menu was not available.

        Excellent — looks perfect and appealing to kids and adults. Thanks so much.

      How was Distrito? One of my favorites in the area! Great drinks too!
