What’s a Philadelphia food blog without a Tria review?
Here it is:
Tria has amazing food and great service. The location in Rittenhouse is a little small, a little too crowded, and a little too loud. If you can get over that, its a great place to catch up with a very small group of friends (maximum 5).
We had a cheese plate which was semi-smelly but quite delicious, a panini-style sandwich, some crostinis with goat cheese and pesto, and the best bread pudding we’ve tried in philly. The bread pudding was surprising because who goes to Tria for dessert? Anyways, it was excellent and we’d go again, but we’ve had our fill for now.
Here we have two find chocolate bars. After much thought and consideration, we decided that the Chuao bar was better. The peppercorns and floral tastes in the Ethereal chocolate bar were interesting, and beautiful, nut based on taste alone, the chua nut bar had it beat!
We would suggest ordering the grilled cheese Mac n cheese. It is a delicious start to your weekend. Square Peg is a great center city brunch places featuring southern food. Being southern girls (Virginian) this place is right up our alley!
To start off, we had the warm cinnamon donuts ( incredible) and a fruit salad (generic, but detoxifying :), we then split the chilaquiles (overall was ok- but with excellent sauce) and the grilled cheese Mac n cheese ( earth-shattering explosion of deliciousness).
The Philadelphia brunch scene is almost certainly ruled by a Day by Day, but we’d say Square Peg is definitely worth a visit or two.
The food and service at Sofitel’s Liberty Lounge was incredible! Actually, the kale chips were a bit of a miss but otherwise, it was all lovely. They messed up the check initially but apologized and made amends immediately.
Next we went to Crumb’s. They have generic cupcakes with sickening frosting, but we picked up a couple of cake pops and went down the street to Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater where we caught Othello. The performance was excellent as always!
