This is really a great used and new bookstore. I primarily go to the high end magazines. You can get recent issues for cheap. It is great for browsing.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if you are looking for crepes. The restaurant is kind of small and you will wait forever and a day to some something marginal. It is located near Rittenhouse Square. Try Beau Monde instead.
This is a great Stephen Starr restaurant. The theme is cuban and latin american. The food is really delicious. There is a bar downstairs and eating upstairs. The bar is somewhat cumbersome to talk to people. I highly recommend the mojito.
Of the Stephen Starr restaurants, this is not my most favorite. The theme is Mexican. I think the food is ok, but not inspirational, for the pirces charged. The decor is too over the top.
This is a great neighborhood restaurant and bar, right off Rittenhouse Square. It is not super special, but is a good quality place to meet for a drink or dinner with friends. Regular, American menu.
The most exquisite, delicious Chinese restaurant, around. Has a bit of a French flair also. Plenty of seating. A great place to take your parents. The meals are always divine.
While lots of people rave about this little market and prepared foods store at the top of Germantown Ave., I never seem to find anything I'm interested in there. They have various soups and sandwiches, as well as reheatable prepared foods. They also have a minuscule vegetable stands, and plants for various seasons. they sell Christmas Trees during the holidays. Good if you live nearby, but I'm not a huge fan.
This is a great byob authentic Mexican restaurant. The space is small, and it is very pricey, but worth it. The same owner owns Grocery and Open House.
This is a basic Irish pub. It is centrally located in the business district of Philadelphia. The food is ok. I like to sit out in the rotunda area, which is slightly less noisy and a nicer environment.
Scoogi's is a solid family restaurant, serving all the usual italian dishes. The food is a really good, and the prices are very reasonable. There is also a bar, as well as take out.
