My fellow foodie and I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of this restaurant. The location is in a nice part of Philly, and although from the outside it seems small, the restaurant is actually very deep (width wise). It was amazing! There is a cheese section, a counter of oils you can sample,  a bakery section (with fresh bread and pastries), a coffee bar, and then a wine cellar (and the wine-y working there really knows her stuff, so if you tell her red or white, and how much you’re willing to spend, she can point you in the right direction! I got 2 reds for $22!)! And in the middle of all of this were dining tables and chairs. My friend and I made the rounds, sampling everything!

crab pasta was AMAZING

my chocolate croissant and tall coffee were heavenly!

the orange rum cake might have been only for opening day (they said it was experimental) still it was DELICIOUS!

His desserts are not only delicious, but beautiful to look at!
