My wife has heard good things about Audrey Clare. I checked out the menu on their website and I would be pleased to venture a visit. Would like to hear the opinions of any CHs who have been there. Sure don't here much about it on this site. Thanks
Never ate there, but her father was my professor years ago. A fine man. That's reason enough to try it and I'm remiss for not having been. I've heard nothing but good about the place.
Most over-rated restaurant in Philadelphia.
We brought our own glassware for a special dinner with wines chosen by my daughter as they did not provide stemware.
My "lightly-cooked" salmon, came back medium. I sent it back which is only the second time I have ever done this.
The highly-touted cheesecake was not available when we got to eating dessert even though I server had been told we wanted it for dessert.
And the topper: The dishwasher was hogging the small bathroom for his smoke break.
I HAVE ONLY EATEN THERE ONCE. WE REALLY ENJOYED THE FOOD - DELICIOUS, AND THE COMBINATIONS WERE ORIGINAL BUT NOT PRETENTIOUSLY SO. OUR ONLY CONCERN WAS THE NOISE IN THE RESTAURANT. EVEN AT A SMALL 4-TOP, WE FOUND THAT TO COMMUNICATE, WE REALLY HAD TO... SHOUT.
Thanks for the comments. Certainly a wide range of opinions and experiences suggesting that Audrey Claire may be constantly inconstant; a roll of the dice as it where. Will have to think more about an investment of time and money. Thanks!
I have only eaten there once, a couple years ago. I liked the flatbread/pizza, but the middle-Eastern-style mezze I ordered (hummus, muhammara, etc) were highly disappointing: I could make far better at home. I don't even remember the entree I got. It's probably not the worst place you could go, but I haven't bothered to go back.
