Too bad the lovely fire in the wait to be seated area was wasted on us, as it was a sunny 75 degree afternoon; but I'd love to go back on a cold, rainy evening and order the LAMB SHEPHERD'S PIE (mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese,wintry vegetables) $16.
The White Dog Cafe.
My one luncheon companion is watching her weight so she went with the BUTTER LETTUCE SALAD (Honey Crisp apples, pomegranate seeds, spiced walnuts, Tuxford and Tebbutt stilton, honey vinaigrette) $9 and the Fish Cakes (poached cod, peekytoe crab, smoked whitefish) $7. The salad was a perfect mixture of ingredients and freshness and look how beautiful. 3 Tines. But we all agreed the fish cakes - eh, not so great, we thought the smoked whitefish puts them in an overly fishy category. 1 Tine.
El Vez, 6 months later he moved over to Jones, (given the financing, I'd love to eat there at least 3 times a week). And then to the celebrity sighting, Parc. Coming from a family of bar owners in Easton PA, he was actually sought after and recruited into the Starr family, which is always so much more desirable than having to knock on doors. I asked him which was his favorite Starr dining establishment, to which he replied the former Tangerine, because it reminded him of his mother's Lebanese home cooking. But when talk of a London Pub was on tap for the next Starr venture, Jay knew this was the ultimate spot to develop the beverage program of his dreams.
What may be the next Starr on the horizon? Jay's been included in talk of a Beer Garden in Northern Liberties- Cheers!
