When you’re given the corporate card for a work lunch or celebratory dinner, there are few spots better than Devon Seafood to expense. If you can nab a window table, you’ll have a stellar view of Rittenhouse Square, but there’s not a bad seat in the place. Go all out and get the chilled shellfish platter, with shrimp cocktail, shucked oysters, king crab legs, and plenty of lobster. Depending on how productive you actually want to be, they also make great martinis.
