Help me find a substitute for Noilly-Prat

Noilly Prat is returning the original dry formula under the Extra Dry name...should be available again soon..too little too late, as we have switched quite happily to Dolin for cooking and Martinis!

Rittenhouse Square area, best sushi/omakase? Steaks? Cheesesteaks?

best tip was the dutch eating place...would not have found this place without this recommendation! I had the apple dumpling with fresh heavy cream. We also stopped in a small place in Chinatown with no english sign (I believe there may have been a neon sign that said Good Chinese Food in the window) and had a steamed bun with vegetables and tripe soup...this is the closest thing to genuine Chinese food I have had in the US since we got back from China...and it was four dollars. Lacroix was nice...Fogo de Chao was fine...but the three most memorable meals cost pocket change...Johns Roast Pork, Dutch Eating Place, and whatever the Chinese place was called. Thanks to everyone for the tips!

Walked by Zama tonite...may do it for lunch Thursday...went for cheesesteaks at Johns Roast Pork when we got in to town for lunch...enjoyed that (along with onion rings and fries, thats enough deep fried goodness for a week). Thanks for the tip on Zama.

Won't be there for Sunday brunch but will try their regular breakfast one morning, as they are right in the hotel! Thank you.

I have a reservation for Barclay Prime for one night already...was thinking of Morimoto for omakase but they are rather cagey about the availabilty of fugu for the time I will be there. Thank you fof the recommendations...will likely try the market as well...the board here and everyone I have spoken to recommends a visit!

3 days 2 nights at the Rittenhouse Hotel end of April to see the Van Gogh exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum...trying to plan breakfast / lunch / dinner for the time in town. Have reviewed a number of local restaurants here and online, what do you local chowhounds recommend? Would like to try the best local sushi/omakase for at least one meal, steaks for another...and would like a solid cheesesteak at some point. Will have a car but would like places local to the hotel if possible. Any price range is fine...would like to hear recommendations. Thanks!
