Housed on the first two floors of a 1907 Victorian mansion, this University City restaurant is well-loved for its BYOB policy and its ever-changing menu of creative New American cuisine. Inside, the restaurant is divided into multiple rooms with high ceilings, a fireplace, and an antique oven used to store wine glasses. Employing molecular gastronomy techniques, local chef Robert Halpern crafts innovative dishes, accompanied by a seemingly endless parade of amuses-bouches and petits fours. Options may include squash soup with thyme foam, squab with chocolate foie gras ragoût, and for dessert, basil crème brûlée.
