In town for Stotes- need restaurant near Embassy Suites for

Hi,

I am chaperoning a group of rowers (hungry boys). We need some ideas for a good place to eat near the Embassy Suites hotel on Ben Franklin Parkway. It has to be walking distance and not too crazy $$$.

We are eating at the hotel one evening. Also, we can get stuff delivered if you also know of someplace that will do this for us.

Healthy is ideal. Pizza is off limits.

how much do you want to spend per person?

what type of healthy food are you thinking of (is Chinese an option)?

how far are you willing to walk? 10-15 minutes?

15 minute walk is fine. I just want to be safe with the kids. I don't want the kids to have to spend more than $20.00.

I'm thinking perhaps Public House or Mexican Post might fit that range with a number of choices.

If you go a little over $20 per person, Maggianos will pile on the food.

There are a ton of inexpensive options in chinatown as well.

And, if all else fails, there's a TGI Fridays not too far away.

Well- I know you said no pizza but I think that Pietro's Coal Oven Pizzeria would be a great choice for this group. In addition to pizza, they offer pasta and great salads. The portions are huge and sharable.

I guess you know that the restaurant in the hotel is a TGI Fridays?
