Located off the lobby on the main floor of the Hilton City Avenue in Philadelphia, Delmonico’s Steakhouse serves lunch and dinner in an elegant, uncrowded room done up in understated shades of tan and brown. On the classic steakhouse menu you’ll find starters such as shrimp cocktail, French onion soup, a wedge salad and crab cakes – true steakhouse classics, to match the timeless vibe inside. For the main course, the beef is exclusively prime USDA steaks that come in various cuts and weights, or opt for the seafood (everything from salmon to lobster tails), veal, rack of lamb or chicken. The choice of a dozen sides includes, somewhat charmingly, hash browns, though the rest of this demure space is meant solely for the adults.

Celebrity Restaurateur: Since opening his first eatery at age 21, Stephen Starr has catapulted to the top of Philadelphia's dining scene with his 20-plus STARR Restaurants. His seamless integration of theatrical surroundings and flavorful, upscale cuisine has earned him myriad honors and acclaim, including the informal title of "Philly’s restaurant king" from Bon Appétit.

While You're Waiting: Grab a libation at the chophouse's horseshoe-shaped bar, which Frommer's lauds as "the perfect spot for a spot of bourbon."
