Cancelled flight! Dinner (casual) near Westin (cab) downtown 17th/Market

Ok, we just got cancelled on layover to Columbus (Go Bucks! I mean Nitanny Lions!), shacking up at Westin on 17th and Market for the night, we have the clothes on our back. Jeans and shorts. Any recs? I imagine our casual attire will dictate wherewe can go, but anything recommended is appreciated. If we can be beggars AND choosers, we'd like slow food/green or Publican type food, small plates. Last resort would be reliable pizza.

      Nit. Lions mean nothing to Philly. LOL I'd keep that stuff quiet.

      I'd take a short cab ride to Chinatown. Jeans and shorts no problem there.

        The Dandelion is only a couple blocks from your hotel and is one of the city's better gastropubs. 18th and Sansom.

            You guys rock, a million thanks! An hour after my post, and we're sitting in Village Whiskey! We chose it due to the menu, but also very close and they have a late night menu, serving some items after 11! Ordering whiskey king burger (cipollini onions, Bleu cheese, bacon, foie), Pimm's cup and duck fat fries! My buddy got a burger and Negroni. Sharing house pickled cauliflower and beets. They "flash pickle" them for 48 hours.

            Nice spot, will report on the food. Good crowd, busy for a Wednesday at 11 pm!

              Good choice, the burgers there are some of the best in the city. After dinner, head across the street to Capogiro, their gelato is one of Philly's best desserts.
