Pbilly foodies need recs

My wife and I will be visiting you fine city the weekend of Sept 16th. Looking for 2 dinners, 2 lunches, and a good coffee/pastry spot. We are staying at the Cosmopolitan. We have a restaurant in Philadelphia and have no food restrictions. One dinner will celebratory/upscale for our anniversary. For all other meals anything goes, especially any ethnic and/or local spots that we can't find in Philly. (this would excuse Portuguese, Chinese, Mexican) Suggestions i have received already are Scaramouche, Canoe, and Mengrai. Your thoughts and opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

  1. Those aren't bad recommendations.
    Upscale = Splendido, Ici, George, etc

    Scaramouche and Canoe, though, fit your bill for upscale

    1. The one thing I would recommend if you're going to be in town during Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is reservations. Book them before you leave Philly with as much advance notice as you can manage. Hot restaurants only get hotter while that's on.
