Really enjoyed our entire experience. Service was lovely; I asked for
some low-sodium choices in advance, and was given a lot of accomodation
that was helpful...

Imaginative appetizers. S-i-L ordered a special--braised short ribs.
When it came, looking gorgeous, all he said was 'Yum!" Daughter and I
shared two very different appetizers: the chicken liver special (it aint
your grandma's chicken liver) and a braised salad/potato/quail egg dish that
we both enjoyed; sensible husband chose a salad that was much to his liking.

Mains: Oh, I did enjoy the veal roulade and its accompaniments, hard to believe they kept the salt off it for my sake. Husband like his veal roulade also; daughter felt her salmon was just perfect, and s-I-L truly appreciated
his rib eye steak. (That's my choice next time: thick, juicy, great sauce,
which our daugther made sure to mop up for her husband) Again, imaginative
vegetables all around. Tasty: no complaints whatsoever.

Dessert: three of us chose the pear flodni, which was scrumptious. Portion
size pleasant; ample, but not over-stuffed. Good coffee; happy vibe to the place.

Very attractive decor; mildest criticism would be noise level, but it was happy
noise, not a problem As a non-Kosher Chowhound, I wouldn't hesitate to come here with Gentile or non-observant friends. It did the Philadelphia restaurant scene proud: just plain good.

Gotta run. More if I think of something I left out. Try this--worth a trip.
