restaurant rec on the main line (for our anniversary)

Our 5-year anniversary is next Friday, and I'm looking for a recommendation for dinner near the Main Line. We're not too familiar with the area since we just moved here.

Our requirements: under $30 per person, can be BYO or not, within 20 min drive of Ardmore. Someone at work recommended Saffron Kitchen (indian) or Verdad in Bryn Mawr (spanish tapas). The only thing we don't want is japanese or seafood.

Re: restaurant rec on the main line (for our anniversary)

  • Sycamore in Lansdowne is amazeballs.  It's BYO

  • Theresa's in Wayne is pretty good (BYO).  We have a gift cert there that I keep forgetting about.

    Trattoria San Nicola in Paoli is amazing...not BYO, but it's up there as one of my favorite places.  We've been there a few times

    Trattoria Guiseppe in Edgemont (BYO) is really good too, though technically not on the Main Line.  It's off of WC Pike next to the Regal movie theatre.

    Haven't been there, but I have hear great things about Verdad.

  • Verdad is great, I've been a few times. Can get a little noisy, so you might want to request a table upstairs if you're looking for quiet conversation.

    There's a new Mexican small plates restaurant in Wayne called Matador that's really good too. 

  • Ooh, or Tango! I love that place. It's in Bryn Mawr.
  • Thanks guys! I'm writing all of these down, so we can try them all at some point.

    Jess: I'm actually going to Matador with some girlfriends on Monday night!

    Fun! I went with girlfriends a few weeks ago, and we loved it. Really good sangria.

    Teresa's is no longer BYO. However, you may BYO only if the wine is from a PA winery.

    This. 

  • I have been meaning to try Verdad, I have heard great things

    I was very disappointed in Tango - the food was below average

    This doesn't fit your criteria, but Savona in Gulph Mills was really good too.  But hands down I would go to Sycamore before anything else.  The atmosphere, food, service - everything was just top notch

    I called Sycamore and they don't have any availability for next Friday (there's a rehearsal dinner that's taking up most of the restaurant). It's definitely on my list for next time we have a babysitter! :) I think I'll look into one of the others that was recommended (will look into Savona too...Gulf Mills is close enough!)

  • I was going to recommend Verdad, but someone beat me to the punch. We've been there a couple of times and really enjoyed it.
