Restaurant Suggestions Appreciated... Holiday Getaway

Hi All,

Have been coming the boards for ideas... but - my mind is numb and I have 5 meals to plan for.

Will be in KoP area and so far, have come up with Spice Kitchen for Christmas Day Lunch; and Susanna Foos for Christmas Dinner...

Still open to changing those, but that is what we have so far. Hubby wants STEAK for dinner next day so after going back and forth between all of the usual contenders - I basically have no idea which one. Am trying to do this without breaking the bank - so that is a consideration. (Mortons = not gonna happen). Read about Blackfish, but hubby is not crazy about overly "fussy" food treatments (even though he was a chef for 30 yrs.)

Prefer to avoid Center City.

Please send any/all suggestions for Steak Dinner (x1) and Casual Lunch (x2). Also open to alternatives to Susana Foos if there are better places... (Have already paid homage to most of the chains... would maybe like to do something different...)

You are all so generous with your recommendations and advice so I thank you in advance!

  1. Can you get into the city?

      Yes, I just try to avoid going there because hubby is a crazy driver in city traffic.

    2. Take a look at either Sullivans or Creeds in the KoP area. The steak at Blackfish is very very good, so I wouldnt dismiss it, and it BYO so you can definitely save money,
