Rec's for Thanksgiving - Center City

I was offered the opportunity to do a network related project for a client in Philly. Good news -- its only 3 or 4 days work and the money is very good. Bad news -- has to get done over Thanksgiving weekend while the company is shut down.

Looks like I will be doing Thanksgiving solo this year. Any suggestions for Center City restaurants, pubs, etc. where I can have a half-decent Thanksgiving meal and not look to weird being alone. Here in New York, Irish pubs are usually good for something like that -- you can sit at the bar and have a meal, etc. I lived in Philly 25 years ago, and I remember there being no shortage of pubs in Center City, just can't remember anything specific.

Thanks for your help and any suggestions!

    Anicca congratulations on your project. You will have lots of choices of places to eat on Thanksgiving. Here is a good thread on Thanksgiving in Philadelphia. Plough and Stars is the first restaurant that comes to mind that would meet your Irish pub criteria.
