I need suggestions for a restaurant that has CLOSE-by parking as I have difficulty with more than a half block's walk. I'm taking my grandson to dinner tomorrow.
Lately I've mostly gone to Sang Kee in Wynnewood, but would like to find a few more places. I live in East Falls, so center city, Manyunk > Chestnut Hill or the near Main Line are easily reached.
TIA for your help.
He's 13. He's super-picky with a very limited range of foods that he'll eat, so I tend to take him to Vietnamese or Chinese restaurants: noodle dishes and short ribs are on his list.
But I also go solo for weeknight meals occasionally, so no need to confine suggestions to meet his "palate."
This is an issue that I also struggle with. Chun Hing near
Pathmark off Monument Ave has excellent Chinese food
choices, without the uncertainly of Chinatown parking.
Something fun and different would be Little Pete's, reached from Fairmount Ave, between 24th and 23rd--parking on Fairmount Ave in that block, or in front of the Philadelphian on Pennsylvania Ave,which usually has a space if you just go around once or twice. Inexpensive; good quality, very different--not Chow, but reliable.
Bar snacks between 5 and 6:30pm at Citron Rose would
be fun for him--we took our 12 year old granddaughter, who sat at the bar (!) had a soft drink, and felt very sophisticated. On street parking, but not when there is ice or snow on the ground as it has been lately. There is a parking lot closer to Old Lancaster, but do NOT use the parking lot next to Citron and Rose--it is too steep and narrow. This would be COOL for a 13 year old. But, very expensive for dinner. Call ahead--see if they have 12oz
Heavenly Burger on menu--$28, and quite divine.
If I think of more I'll post.
