Place for Drinks before dinner at Bistrot la Minette

ElaineL Sep 3, 2011 12:50 PM

Coming into Philly for anniversary dinner next Saturday at Bistrot la Minette. We're not familiar with this area and would like to have drinks before dinner (wine or cocktails). What's in this area that would fit the bill? If it has outdoor seating, all the better.

    Southwark would be a great choice for cocktails and it's two blocks away.

        Chick's, a block away, also has good cocktails and wines by the glass. But I think Southwark is my favorite around there.

          depends on your tastes/style. i'd be inclined to go to Tatooed Moms, which is right on south st. the unofficial dress code there, though, is a bit less formal than bistro la minette...

              Thanks, all! We went to Southwark and enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the cocktails and a great goat cheese appetizer. Great rec!
