Help! Need restaurant for 9:00 tomorrow night

gsElsbeth Nov 19, 2011 02:17 PM

We're picking up son and wife from the airport. Flight gets in at 7:30, but it always takes forever to get the bag, so I figured we'd finally see them at about 8:30, then a little while to get into the city. I looked at Meritage, Ulivo,, Tre Scalini, none are open on Sundays at 9:00. Any suggestions? DIL appetite little iffy (early pregnancy), but the rest of us will be starving. My problem with Open Table is that I didn't recognize the names of any of the restaurants that I was seeing. Need guidance. BYO or wine list, doesn't matter. Thanks.

    If you want casual, I'd go to the South Philly Tap Room. Food is excellent and there are also good basics in case your DIL needs to avoid anything. But, looking at Open Table, I saw lots of good tables for four: a.kitchen, Amis, Dandelion, Supper, Tinto, and Zahav.

      Osteria is wonderful on Sunday nights. Not as crowded and they are open late. Easy access off of 95.

      zahav will be open- small plates are great if the appetites hard to predict

      i think barbuzzo is an option too- i personally prefer zahav
