Novelty (Philly)

  • l

Oh, well this one I would say is just fine, but nothing to go out of the way for.

Wed nite, pretty crowded. Very over-designed space, sort of industrial chic. My salmon was fine, nothing stands out in my mind about my 3 companions' dishes, and I tasted them all (oops :) There wasn't anything really exceptional about the place. The wine list was barely adequate. I know it's PA, but other places did much better.

The desserts were good, we had an interesting orange/pistachio creme brulee (didn't really taste strongly of those flavors, but still good) and a truly excellent caramel macadamia nut tart. Quite over the top :)
