Becca's Restaurant - Phoenixville

We've eaten at Becca's about 10 times during the past 2 years and have had the tasting menu on at least 4 of our visits. We've always enjoyed our meals there but the tasting menu we had this past Saturday night was the best one yet. The staff is welcoming and accommodating and the kitchen is very willing to accept requests as to what you want on the tasting menu. The tasting consists of two appetizers, a fish course, a meat course, a cheese plate and dessert. Our meal was nicely paced. We had time to enjoy everything and never felt rushed. We requested the butter poached lobster tail as our fish course and the duck breast for our meat course. Both requests were willingly fulfilled. The first appetizer was a pan-seared diver scallop on quinoa. The scallop was perfectly cooked and the quinoa was flavorful and included the bite of cilantro. The next appetizer was Waygu beef slices on field greens with strawberry vinaigrette. The beef was tender and delicious. Next was the lobster tail (half a tail out of the shell) served with a vanilla butter sauce served on a bed of polenta; which was absolutely delicious, the vanilla complements the sweetness of the lobster meat. The duck breast with foie gras was good, but not exceptional. Dinner was followed by a cheese plate (one for each of us) and dessert.

Robert (the chef/owner) tends to be subtle in his seasonings. I believe this is to let the food flavors speak for themselves. His flavors tend to be on the sweeter side (but not overly sweet) and some of our previous meals have seemed like the flavors needed a bit more zip. This was not the case on Saturday; everything was perfectly seasoned with some creative flavor profiles.

Recommended and an exceptional value if you use a restaurant.com coupon, plus Becca’s is BYOB.
