Vango, Then Continental

Last night we partied at Vango just off Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. Vango (on 18th between Chestnut and Walnut) bills itself as "Philadelphia's boldest restaurant, lounge and sky bar featuring innovative cocktails, modern cuisine and a menu of nightly deejays." We enjoyed signature mango infused vodka cocktails and samples of some of Vango's Japanese menu.
As the sun began to set on this great, clear, crisp spring evening in the city we headed just up the street to Steven Starr's Continental Midtown where we feasted on goodies like Rad Na Thai Chicken, Spinach Ravioli and the ever-favorite Crispy Calamari Salad. The Continental was teeming with fashionable diners inside, outside and on the roof. We were happy to ensconce ourselves smack in the center of things in a comfy round banquette. We couldn't figure out what we liked most: the food, the vibe or the people-watching. It was all simpatico.
After The Continental we ended our jaunt with gelato at the irresistible Capogiro - a truly perfect ending to a great spring evening!
