Nice Dinner Before the Electric Factory?

We're headed to a show at the Electric Factory and want to have a nice dinner before hand (we don't mind going to the show in nice dinner clothes). We're new to the Philly dining scene, so we're not sure where to start. We like places like Public and Bar Americain in NYC.

    There are a couple casual restaurants and decent gastropubs near the Factory but nothing upscale is within walking distance, it's sort of a gritty industrial area. Are you looking to walk to the show after? You might be better off looking at the threads rocknroll posted and then taking a cab to the show, it won't be too far.

Are you willing to experience something different? You might want to checkout some of the recent threads on this board, such as these
