Saturday Night Eating & Drinking in Center City

Thanks for the after dinner drinks suggestions. I have put XIX at the Bellevue high on my list - sounds like the views of the city up there and the space are both worth checking out.

Great suggestions - all sound yummy! I want to go to the Reading Terminal Market on the Saturday so I'll keep my eyes open. Have heard lots of good things about the food.

A place to consider - I like that they have a prix fixe menu which some in my group would go for since we will probably be spending more at Morimoto. I still can't believe no corkage fees!

I'm loving this Horizons recommendation. Looks interesting & delicious (I checked out the menu on their website) and although I'm a meat eater, I am big on tofu & tempeh.

Oh we'll definitely all be having dessert at Morimoto. I, for one, plan to enjoy the whole experience!

Saturday Night Eating & Drinking in Center City

I'm coming down to Philadelphia from Ontario for a birthday weekend celebration with friends next month.

I already have a reservation at Morimoto for the birthday dinner on Sunday and would like some recommendations for less expensive dining on the Saturday night. I would like to experience a BYOB (type of food really isn't an issue, just not Japanese for obvious reasons!), preferably in/around Center City and not too expensive (say around $50 or under per person?). Also, one of us is Vegetarian. Up here we have BYOB but always have to pay corkage so would like a BYOB without corkage fees.

Also, we would like to go out for drinks after dinner on Saturday night. Any ideas as to Lounges with an older crowd (late 30's/early 40's)? We are not looking to shake our booties (too old - ha!) but to just have some good drinks/talk with a great vibe.

One last thing, any suggestions as to handmade chocolate shops I should check out (big chocolate freak here)? Or bakeries?

Thanks for your help.
