Planning on spending the weekend in Philly. I realize that this is completely subjective, but can anyone recommend good places to eat {from philly cheese steaks to more upscale} ?

Also, any good bars/lounges/wine bars or neighborhoods that are cool to spend time in.

Have already done the typical tourist things so any other recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I’m going back to that area (Bethlehem for Musikfest) next week too. It’s my old stomping grounds.

As far as Cheese Steaks and most regional food go, the nastier the establishment appears, the better the food.

I haven’t been there in years but I understand the Franklin Institute http://www.franklininstitute.com/ has been cleaned up considerably.

You've probably done these But,

Plenty of Colonial history to see – Independence Hall http://www.nps.gov/inde/, Betsy Ross House http://www.betsyrosshouse.org/, etc.


Toofar for a weekend trip but maybe Longwood Gardens http://www.longwoodgardens.org/TheGardens_1_3_2.html next time.

Born and raised in Philly, well actually outside of philly in Bucks County. In regards to cheesesteaks, Any place on South Street is awesome to eat. Even better after 12am. It seems the "freaks" come out about that time so you get a dinner and a show! Have a great time in Philly! :D

Bookbinders is another good place to eat right by Society Hill.

Yes, but the very specific veggie & condiment augmentation mentioned above.

They say Weber came in often ordering exactly that.

I had one last week and after a decade without, now want more.

There is a chain here which offers them called “Cheesesteak Subs” in addition to Tastykakes & Taylor Porkroll. They used to call themselves “The Philly Cheesesteak Shop” but have since dropped the “Philly” name. My guess is some copyright infringement nonsense. There’s even one in Truckee. Look for a Liberty Bell on the sign.

If you’ve never had one, (And are not averse to red meat) try one with a side of sweet pickled peppers.

Yum-O
