Visiting with Kids on Easter
We will be visiting Philadelphia Easter weekend and am canvassing for suggestions of places to eat where we would be welcome with three kids (ages 2, 5 & 7) for lunch/dinner, and especially that might be open on Easter Sunday. Cost not so much of a concern; it is vacation, after all. Also probably not anything on the Szechuan 4-pepper end of the spiciness spectrum.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Take a look here for restaurants open on Easter:
I'll go out on a limb and say that on easter, I don't think kids will be a problem at most places, though you might want to call ahead and see if you'll have to full price for the kids. Some of the places on that list have actives and children menus listed.
Out of that list, I'd say hit Le Virtu if the menu appeals to your family.. it is really a great and unique restaurant. It looks like your hotel is doing an explicitly "kids friendly" brunch but I've never heard anything about food there, and at $50pp (adults) you can do much better elsewhere I am sure, probably for less money.
Do take the kids for breakfast or lunch at Reading Terminal Market on Saturday http://www.readingterminalmarket.org (they are closed Sunday). You may want to consider Jones also. It's very kid friendly and an easy walk (8th and Chestnut). For snacks, get yummy coconut tarts and cookies at Tartes between 2nd and 3rd on Arch St. and go to Shane's Candy (between Front and Second on Market St.) for chocolate treats and Franklin Fountain a few doors west for ice cream confections. Both are really close to the Hyatt. Which, is very close to Zahav which is fabulous but maybe not what you're looking for cuisine-wise.
