Overnight in Northern Liberties

truffles2 | Feb 13, 201201:04 PM

Spent a very fun night with my daughter last Thursday. We started with mani/pedi's but that is a topic for another website. Dinner was at Modo Mio. Oh my. We both had the 4 course prix fixe meal, and shared. My favorites were: 1) the crab cake appetizer - unlike anything I've had in the crab cake department. It sat on a bed of creamy and satisfying cheese, and was topped with a small but perfect piece of some sort of pastry. Next was the pasta course, and the winner was the veal ravioli. The sauce was perfect and the portions were just right. For the main course, I had the bistecca which was unexpectedly spicy, which is usually not my thing, but this was a dish that kept me looking forward to the next bite. Last, we had the tiramisu, which was the lightest I've ever had and a decadent flourless chocolate cake. We pretty much rolled home - perfect!

The next morning, or should I say more like brunch, we ended up a the One Shot cafe. The tough part was making a decision from a very creative menu. There was a croissant with honey, marscapone and strawberries, a breakfast burrito, broccoli quiche, on and on. I had a dish with ham, swiss, and dijon serve between two slices of brioche with a fried egg on top and maple syrup on the bottom. On the side, a coffee/mocha/hazelnut concoction. Delicious and filling. Can't wait to go back and try something else...

Best mother/daughter night & sleep over ever!
