Help! First Time To Philly
Myself and 2 buddies are coming from LA and Orange County CA at the end of July.
We are looking for great meat and seafood restaurants- Our budget is $100/person
We are also looking for the best Cheesesteak place as well?
Any recommendations would be appreciated.
is a really good thread
the great cheesteak debate is long and storied on CH Philadelphia, search cheesteak and you will see for yourself
(as much as I like a good cheesesteak, go for a roast pork Italian either at DiNic's in the Reading Terminal Market or John's Roast Pork
gaffk.. how could you not mention roast pork with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe... DiNics should be derigeour for first time visitors to the RTM... perhaps thats what you meant by real Philadelphia sandwiches. If I had my druthers, first timers would not be able to have a cheesesteak from anywhere til they had a real roast pork... but then again .. à chacun son goût.
Sarcone's hoagies, tomato pie ... ah the bread.
734 South 9th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147-2734
As far a I know, you need to get there by lunch when they run out of bread they stop.
Good suggestions here so far on the cheesesteak stuff! This link is to a survey by the Philly
food critic Craig LeBan employing a team of young guys to seek their best cheesesteak. http://www.philly.com/philly/restaura...
I was not sure about the $100 per person per ? meal, day, visit?? But for great meat the Prime Rib at the Warwick Hotel is excellent. Also for a steak house perhaps choose from the usual suspects a local steakhouse which you can also reference here. Another dinner suggestion might be Zahav, great bar, small plates and a James Beard winner this year. Welcome to Philly!
