Restaurants & Bars Philadelphia

My husband & I went there last night...they just opened last week. Nice space...plenty of room between tables. They started us out with a small bowl of nuts, cheese and salami cubes and bread with very tasty chimichurri dip. Then they sent out an oxtail and trotter terrine- amazing! It wasn't a menu item and the waitress said the chef sends out something different each night.
We ordered the ham & the chicken empanadas-compared very favorably to ones we had daily on vac. in Buenos Aires. Haven't had any as good in Phila. H had the mixed grill..very nice portion -the blood sausage and grilled sweetbreads were standouts. I had the breaded chicken-very good-but not an exciting choice! Also loved the duck fat fingerlings that were served with both our entrees. Shared dessert-bread pudding-it was ok-probably not necessary and a rather heavy choice after all we ate! Chef/owner came out to speak with us-nice guy.
They weren't crowded but they're new and it was a weeknight. For the quality and price I think they'll catch on soon. We'll definitely be back.
