    If you're into French bistro fare, I really like Bistrot La Minette.

    I had a good time drinking at The Farmer's Cabinet the other night, but it's usually mobbed on the weekends. They're typically really slow anyways, so it might be downright unpleasant when things are in full swing.

    Southwark is one of the best cocktail bars. The food is somewhat disappointing.

    Ah, Philly...spent the best four years of my life there.

    Barclay Prime for steak; Royal Tavern for burgers and wings; Monk's or Eulogy for beer; Franklin or Time for cocktails; Pat's for cheesesteaks at 4am (Jim's is better but closes at 2 or 3). Wake up and head to Morning Glory Cafe for brunch and you're good to go.

    I'm leaving out quite a bit here (NoLibs, for starters -- can't go wrong with North 3rd or Standard Tap)...Philly is an epic eating and drinking city, though.

    I don't know much in the vein of fine dining in Philadelphia, but the best place I've been to for the traditional cheesesteak is Jim's Steaks on South Street. I would highly recommend it, the steaks are delicious, wide variety of drinks and a nice sitting area upstairs.
