Delightful Dinner at Tango in Bryn Mawr

Had a class Friday at the Bryn Mawr library. After, a few of us took the teacher out for dinner, as it was her birthday. We decided to try Tango, since it was close by and one of the party had eaten there in the past. We arrived just after 5 to an empty restaurant, it filled up pretty quickly soon after.

The space is charming - it's in the old Bryn Mawr train station. They've stripped the walls of any drywall that may have existed so the stone walls and beams are exposed. The fabric of the banquets and carpeting keep it from being echo-y, even when empty.

the menu was varied, and everything was very tempting! We had a tough time choosing. I had the roast duck breast with a cherry wine reduction - absolutely divine. 2 of my companions had the rainbow trout, one had the branzino, and the last had the seared scallops with edmame rissoto. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. the fish appeared to be cooked perfectly, as was my duck.
3 of us had dessert, the "birthday girl" had the creme brulee which came with a teeny candle discreetly stuck on the edge of the plate. the other lady had a brownie sundae with chocolate and caramel sauce. I had the molton chocolate souffle, which was absolutely divine.

I'm planning to go back later this month for a birthday dinner. i can't wait. :)
