"Magazine Restaurant" Review

Bride of the Juggler | Feb 9, 2002 09:58 PM

Noticed a blackboard outside Magazine (2029 Walnut) that said "Now open, come on in," so we did.

My husband had a martini and I had a cosmopolitan ($8 each). Each was served with it's own little drink shaker that had more in it, so it was almost a double.

He had the tuna tartare with wonton chips ($10). The soy marinade had a nice touch of sweetness, and it came with some mixed greens. I had the gnocchi with fresh mozzarella ($11) which were very light, in a red sauce that was very fresh, a bit creamy, with fresh herbs in it.

For dessert I had the coconut rice pudding ($6) which was excellent, very lightly coconut-y, but was overwhelmed by the chocolate sauce swirled on top. He had the chocolate souffle ($6) which we at first thought was the wrong dessert because it came in a cup filled with whipped cream. The hot souffle hidden underneath was rich, dark, and definitely had a kick of rum. The desserts were garnished with the same fried wonton chips as the tuna tartare.

I would definitely go back, although the menu did not have anything particularly unique to make this restaurant stand out - yet.

Thank you.
