I attended Share Our Strength's Taste the Nation on Monday (http://taste.strength.org/site/PageSe...), which is a terrific cause and a great time if you've never done it. I've been meaning to post some reviews of the various places, but time keeps escaping me :)
Anyway, one of the restaurants whose food I tried that I was very impressed with was called Noble, a new place I'd never heard of on Sansom Street. I work at Cira Centre at 30th Street, and I'm always looking for places to eat lunch (yeah, 20th and Sansom is *just* far enough away to make that a little inconvenient). Noble isn't open for lunch yet (they told me it would be soon) but I thought the food was terrific. They served some kind of cold country pate, I think it was pork based, on a crostini with a hugely flavorful tomato chutney - sweet, spicy, gingery, awesome. The chef even offered to send me the recipe. They do local seasonal food, and I'm eager to try out the dinner menu soon.
Anybody else been? Any thoughts?
