IAGREE with your Sept. 16 editorial on the waterworks. The city should encourage the restaurateur who can provide the most exquisite dining experience. As for the obstacles: complicated parking, structural and historical limitations, and the need to fit a wide range of diners' pocketbooks, the first two are routinely encountered when dining in Center City or Old City, and the last needn't be an issue. The restaurant should be a special destination/special occasion one that would be so tempting to "foodies" that they would travel here and stay overnight.

It's the only political fund-raiser for which candidates pay $125 a ticket, knowing the money may help somebody they're running against. That's the Democratic City Committee dinner, which drew about 1,600 party faithful to the Franklin Plaza last night, according to treasurer Norman Loudenslager. Another 300 or so paid $250 apiece for a cocktail reception. Mayor Goode, the guest of the party that endorses him, made it clear - in the name of unity - that he will be fielding his own slate of candidates in the May 19 primary.

Last night might have been the best night of the year to snag a table without a reservation or a wait at the city's best restaurants - the streets were clear, the parking was decent, yet hordes of people had canceled their reservations earlier and stayed home. An informal telephone survey of some of the city's better restaurants turned up a bunch of lonely restaurant managers amid empty tables, mostly because the unusual nature of the storm produced piles of forbidding snow in the morning that quickly melted on the roads, making travel fairly easy later in the day. So, for a rare change, diners could walk into just about any restaurant in the city and get a table without a wait or a reservation - and with an eager staff waiting to serve.

Over and over, we hear that the nagging by Republicans, the media and former female acquaintances should end, and President Clinton should be allowed to do his job. I'm in favor of everyone doing the job for which they are hired and paid, whether it is a corporate CEO, a bartender or a kid who mows the lawn. And at times I'm amazed that anyone has the energy and brains for the demands of the presidency, which is the most awesome job in the world. So I would be delighted and relieved if President Clinton could be spared distractions.

State Sen. Manville Powell, candidate for mayor of Philadelphia, cordially invites you to a campaign fund-raising dinner, during which he will be murdered. He probably has it coming - he's a thoroughly disagreeable sort - and David Goldstein is more than happy to oblige. Goldstein has been killing off politicians at dinner for more than a year. Right now the murders are occurring in Boston; Dallas, and Shrewsbury, Mass., as well as in Philadelphia. And in September, the mayhem will spread to Tampa, Fla., and Sacramento, Calif.

New-age Irish singer Enya's music played softly in the background, as the freshly lit candles sent a soft glow over a table graced with fine china and generous glasses of wine on a table covered with a crisp linen cloth. Yup, it's Wednesday night dinner at Scott and Maureen Murphy's modest townhouse in Chesterbrook - and that's how it is every night. But it wasn't always so. Scott Murphy was happy to take on the task of making dinner every night after he and Maureen got married.

It was billed as a dinner to die for, with dishes from an 1876 cookbook edited by Benjamin Franklin's great-granddaughter (crab soup, sirloin roasted on a spit, Scandinavian Almond Cake) and "entertainment" at the grave sites of Philadelphia culinary notables. "Dig In: A Culinary Tour and Class," held June 11, featured dinner by chef Chris Koch at the Marketplace at East Falls, after which two dozen or so daring participants walked across the street with West Chester University English professor Michael W. Brooks for a twilight stroll through Laurel Hill Cemetery, bats and all. For Laurel Hill, which offers programs at least once a month year-round, the culinary venture was a successful first.

REALITY TELEVISION has brought together many odd pairings - people dating naked, people getting married at first sight, Khloe and Lamar - but VH1 is taking it one step further with its new fall TV series, Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party . Snoop is, of course, the talented musician and youth football coach, Mr. Dogg. Martha is neither Martha Wash , Martha of Vandellas fame or fashion model Martha Hunt . She's Martha Stewart . What could those two have in common (aside from a love of TV game shows and Justin Bieber )

Dinner with Edward By Isabel Vincent Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill. 213 pp. $23.95 Reviewed by Laurie Hertzel Isabel Vincent's marriage was on the verge of ending when a friend introduced her to Edward, a man whose wife had just died. The attraction was immediate. What followed was not a romance - Isabel was in her 40s, Edward in his 90s - but a close relationship that can only be called love. In her memoir Dinner with Edward , Isabel - a hard-nosed, hard-boiled investigative reporter and former war correspondent - tells a delightful story of how this friendship unfolded over lavish gourmet meals prepared by the flamboyant Edward in his New York apartment.

This is easy, breezy, no-cook meal assembly. You know the drill: The fewer the ingredients in a recipe, the better their quality should be. So go for the naturally roasted turkey breast at the deli counter and an oil-packed brand of canned tuna that you trust. If your dinner companions are unfamiliar with tonnato, you don't need to explain it as "a pureed tuna sauce" until after they've had a bite or two. Tonnato is often made with egg yolks, but this one's thickened with pureed chickpeas, a bit of yogurt, and less olive oil than usual.

DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter, a junior in high school, is still living at home. She has befriended a 51-year-old man at her first job (a burger place). We have told her that although she is kind to be friendly with him at work, we feel it's inappropriate to do things with him outside of work. She's now upset with us and contends that we "don't understand," that "nothing romantic is going on," and that she thinks of him as a "second father. " Although they have not gotten together yet outside of work, she announced last weekend that she was going to meet him for lunch.

WHAT IT IS? The tradition of the "Shore dinner" goes back generations. And plenty of restaurants that started that concept along the Jersey Shore have flowed and ebbed with the tides - and are long gone - like Captain Starns and Hackney's, which once graced Atlantic City's beaches, Busch's in Sea Isle City, and Zaberer's inland in Egg Harbor Township. Diners then knew there may have been no better way to really experience the shore than to taste it. And, lucky for us, there are still plenty of places these days where seafood is purveyed in hallowed halls with a kind of reverence for the basic broiled, baked, or fried dinner ritual.

Non-apology apology Larry Wilmore has issued a non-apology apology for using offensive verbiage at the White House Correspondents Association dinner. "I may have underestimated the tone of how I was telling the jokes," he said Tuesday. The Nightly Show host, who is African American, has been criticized for using the N-word to address President Obama . "I knew that it would be provocative and, yes, I was taking a big chance," Wilmore, 54, said, adding that the controversy may turn into valuable dialogue for the country.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Recently, an engaged couple that my boyfriend and I dine with semiregularly bailed at the last minute on long-standing dinner reservations at a nice restaurant. Their cancellation was so last-minute we couldn't have canceled the reservation even if we'd wanted to; fortunately, another couple was included in the reservation and the four of us were able to enjoy dinner together. The guy texted all of us, saying that dinner wasn't "in the cards" for them due to wedding-registry activities.
