I will be attending the Van Gogh exhibit this Saturday and am looking for a restaurant for brunch. Needs to be within walking distance. Any recommendations?

      +1 for Fig. 25th and Meridith. Walk is about 1/3 of a mile. Can get crowded on weekends, so reservations are helpful, and they are cash only. Brunch is from 10-2 on weekends.

        +2 for figs!

        also walkable in the neighborhood is the diner little pete's, the bishops collar, london grille (never tried but i know they offer brunch, along with a bloody mary bar) and my personal favorite mccrossen's ($20 for a good meal and unlim bloody mary's and mimosas).

      Brunch at the Philadelphia Museum is not bad. The name of the restaurant is Granite Hill, its managed by Stephen Starr. Entrees run from 12-24 dollars, and brunch is served from 10:30-2:30. You can book through open table.

          For an upscale brunch, try the Fountain Room or Swann Lounge at the Four Seasons.

          How a quirky homey experience, try Sabrina's.

          Have not been to fig but heard good things.
