    I must admit that I am from the Philadelphia area, and have not visited City Tavern before. I always knew it existed, but never really had the opportunity to go there. A week ago, I made a reservation for myself and a guest. \r \r I am not a big history buff, but I do not mind learning something new. City Tavern is a great place to do just this while enjoying some FANTASTIC food and excellent drinks. Upon being promptly seated for our 7:00pm reservation, we were greeted by a cordial waiter wearing knickers :P. He took our drink order and later gave us a brief history about the restaurant. \r \r I won't bore you with the ""during dinner details"" but I did want to make it clear how excellent and worth the trip the food is. Whether you live in the city or are visiting from out of town, this is a great place to visit for a drink and definitely a bite to eat.\r \r Don't be fooled by those glitzy, glamourous places in Center City with $150 cheese steaks and overpriced atmosphere - City Tavern may not be as hip as these places, but it definitely has some history.
