Audrey Claire, Philadelphia

May 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

Continuing to log my time in Philadelphia, I have to recommend Audrey Claire. It is the most charming little BYO on a street of fairty tale brownstones. They call themselves, “Philadelphia’s own little slice of the West Village.” With open air windows, white washed walls and breezy atmosphere, you’ll feel transplanted to the Mediterranean. It is the perfect spot for a date, to gather with family, or a dinner with girlfriends (especially because it is BYO).

 

Not to mention the food is fresh, flavorful, even succulent! We started with the Grilled octopus w/ feta, salad and it was perfect—nice and light but the octopus was meaty and smokey. After watching 8 orders of mussels go by, we just had to taste. The mussels themselves were enormous and served in a bowl of delicious, spicy tomato broth for which we ordered an extra basket of bread. Finally, the pappardelle w/ portobello mushrooms—I have a weakness for pasta and this made me weak in the knees. The pasta was buttery and soft and the mushrooms were earthy, there was sautéed arugula to balance out the richness and my mom called the whole thing, “The best thing I’ve eaten in a long time.”
