Last night I stepped a bit out of my comfort zone. I went to a party where I didn’t know anyone. I knew some twitter handles, but that was about it.

Hello from Philly,
Be sure to make the reservation for the Sunday $38 four-course tasting menu way in advance! There are only two seatings–one at 5 pm and one at 8 pm. The tiny space had at most 8 tables available. You get to watch the chef and his apprentice make every single dish and perfect it until served. The sashimi was a fresh appetizer, however the shellfish dumplings really wow’ed us.

Some people left without even finishing it.
bun + brie: 3.5/5
