Walnut Street Supper Club Opens Tonight, Plus Ck out my “One Shot” Column in Philly Mag Online

Romantic, entertaining, a great place to eat as a primer on your way to the theater or a night out on the town. There’s another room to the left, and a mezzanine level. The restaurant seats 170 people and takes reservations.
