Homemade Gnocchi at Restaurants

I second the Cucina Forte mention, the gnocchi is top notch and it's awesome with a mix of the house made tomato sauce and gorgonzola sauce.

Trip Review - First time in Philadelphia

Glad you enjoyed the culinary scene, just curious what were your thoughts on the city itself?

Eli Kulp: "People in New York just don't go to Philadelphia"

http://www.grubstreet.com/2014/01/ser...

Some interesting commentary from Kulp and Serpico in this article and a unique perspective from chefs who are relocating down here from New York. I understand this article is in a NYC-centric blog, but the content still kind of rubbed me the wrong way...I understand there are some truths in what they are saying but it still comes off as elitist and if I was Kulp I would have refrained from saying something like "People in New York just don't go to Philadelphia", regardless of the context.

Good Bar for a Large Group of People

Thanks for the suggestions! Frankford Hall is one place that I've really wanted to get to, unfortunately with uncles/aunts/grandparents coming into the city (likely by train) we are looking for areas we can walk to from Suburban/Market East.

I'm pretty open to most spots in Center City proper...I would prefer Center City East but if there are some good options west of Broad that won't be a problem

Good Bar for a Large Group of People

Hello All, I'm new to this board and I need some suggestions for places to drink for this Saturday...the backstory is this is going to be a special occasion as I'm proposing to my GF on Saturday...I have dinner reservations at La Famiglia at 5:30 for our immediate families but some other friends/family members will be meeting us for drinks afterward.

I'm pretty familiar with the city, but without reservations I'm trying to brainstorm some good options where we can get drinks as a group without being crammed into tight corners, which I fear might be the case given it will be Saturday evening...the size of our group is not set in stone but I'm thinkin it will end up being 15-20 people in total. All suggestions are welcome, thanks!!
