I live in Philadelphia and know the famous history of the Old City Tavern. This is a place where the founding fathers met in 1774 so it's a must see with tourists. The restaurant burned in 1825 but was rebuilt. Anyway I dropped $400 there with a party of 6. The service was pitiful and the food average. I had the lobster pie ($42) and the lobster was chewy and metallic tasting. I could not eat it. The decor was nice though.
