After a long day in which I worked through lunch, I stopped for a 9 pm dinner at the bar feeling worn out. I was greeted while walking in by a friendly hostess and immediately served by the bartender. They have added a TV to the bar area for watching sporting events like the World Series.
I got the duck spring rolls and rib eye. Both were cooked extremely well and served with sauces of choice. Everyone at the bar was friendly. Good times.
This place was great! The menu has something for everyone, and while modern, it retains classic flavors and dishes.
We enjoyed the restaurant's full bar, and we loved the steaks. The food is well-prepared and delicious. The starters were probably the best part of our meal, which, by no means minimizes the quality of the mains.
If you are not from the Philadelphia area, unless you head to the restaurant during rush hour, it is a quick 10 to 15 minutes from Center City, and even less from the University City area of West Philadelphia.
Though a bit pricey, it is worth it for a special treat! It would be nice, however, if the restaurant had more expanded hours.

Don't let the location, or the simple decor fool you, this is a powerhouse restaurant. The service is exemplary, and a James Beard Award Winner, Chef Michael Solomonov add up to superb cuisine. The innovative menu brings kosher cuisine to the highest level, there was no course lacking finesse. I would return to this restaurant in the blink of an eye, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in haute cuisine kosher dinning.
- This restaurant had since found a new chef, Karen Nicolas, and was still worthwhile, but now she is gone, and I would think so has the quality of the food. This must be revisited.
