BYOB for birthday dinner - Ctr City - old standard or something new?

Birthday coming up. Old stand-bys include Radicchio and Cafe Casta Diva. Anything new that we should try? Any favorites you would suggest?

Any thoughts on Marigold Kitchen? (yes, I know it's not CC, but we can drive - we're already coming in from Ambler)

My best birthday dinner ever was dinner at Marigold Kitchen (several years and about two chefs ago) when they treated us like royalty b/c my husband looks like Craig LaBan. I said the the waiter "do you really think Craig LaBan would be drinking Cavit pinot grigio?"

  1. MK is great, as long as you don't mind a 3 hour, 16-17 "course" (some are just a bite) dinner.

    Or The Farm & Fisherman is great.

    1. Bibou is wonderful -- not Center City but we almost always get a spot in the parking lot next door.
