Leftover Figs pizza

Went there for my first time (Chestnut Hill location) and wasn't terribly impressed. Now eating the leftover fig/prosciutto, it reminds me of how the fig totally overpowered the prosc. and made everything too sweet. The other half was scallops w/ pesto sauce which was better but the crust itself was VERY hard to cut thru on that side. Spinach salad w/ bacon was fine altho the dressing wasn't warm as advertised. Service was good early on a Fri. nite before it filled up. Maybe we caught it on a so-so nite, but their pizza wasn't as good as that great one at Dish.

The nite before was dinner at Abe & Louie's and since I only had one cheesesteak in Philly, I was ready for meat. When we finally sat down. My friend was late getting there so the 7:30 reservation fell to the wayside and it took a while, hanging around that crazy crowded bar with a million guys in loafers and no socks. The bartender was quick and sweet tho, tasty apple martinis, and we ended up eating outside on a warm nite so that was fine. Bone in filet mignon and beef wellington were our entrees and we agreed the filet was the better of the two. Very tasty, actually cooked as asked. The onion strings were great, roasted potatos came with the beef wel. (a daily special). Split the Abe & Louie's salad of greens, cheese, nuts and apple which was decent but the apples had cinnamon sprinkled on for unneeded sweetness. Sides and glasses of wine were fairly reasonably priced compared to some other steak places. Desserts were pedestrian and they were out of the choc. souffle so we split a huge piece of choc. cake w/ ice cream which was very good. And the leftovers provided a meal a couple days later. I bet lots of palms get greased at that place.
