910 Christian Street (9th and Christian) Sabrina's is really crowded if you go for brunch, but not so bad for dinner. It's near the Italian Market, which is also worth checking out. For vegetarians, who might otherwise miss out on Philly cheesesteaks, Sabrina's has a great seitan version! The menu is kind of like classic American food with a twist. BYOB
