Foursquare Tips

  • Excellent little brasserie with chef Paul Lyons (a graduate of Barbuzzo and Jamonera). The substantial $15 steak frites is an early hit. Try the octopus, and say yes to the crispy chickpea flatbread.
  • Not feeling the new menu.
  • great cocktails, good food
  • My favorite old fashioned in Philly. Always on point. Everytime. I get it with Mezcal most of the time (not a Oaxacan Old Fashioned). But it's also great with their house bourbon.
  • Wednesday tasting and pairing menu was a fabulous experience. And with four courses and four different wines (multi glasses if u want) at $75 is a bargain too
  • Reasonably priced, slightly loud, bistro. Socca is a must get. Spencer Trappist on draught is clutch.
  • Cozy place. Came here on a cold day. Staff is attentive and friendly. As a whiskey drinker, I enjoyed my tequila based drink, Farmacia. Delicious.
  • Fries caked in salt - horrible. Grilled artichoke - burned, tasted like lighter fluid, no flesh. Very polite waitress.
  • Fava bean tartine, heirloom tomato salad, and Brussels sprouts are to die for.
  • Escargot is delicious as is the duck. And French fries with aioli are a must!
  • The meat board is killer.
  • Solid beer/wine/drink list but don't miss the food! The boards are great. Awesome frog legs.
  • Really good looking bartender
  • The steak tartare is amazing. Great French restaurant with affordable prices!
  • This is THE BEST Old Fashioned in Philadelphia. Even a little better than Village Whiskey.
  • Try the old fashion. Perfect balance of flavors!
  • Don't ask what cheese or wine is being served just take it. They will not know what their talking about. Perhaps will be decent.
  • GET the Meat Board and Grilled Octopus over baby arugula as a starter, the burger, steak or trout are amazing. Don't skip out on the butterscotch brittle chocolate brulee
