There aren't many Mexican restaurants in town, but even if there were, this would still stand out as one of the best. The menu tends towards more subtle flavors, such as Chicken Molé slow cooked, a rich mild flavor. The margaritas are made with fresh juices, the music is the right volume for conversation, and the high ceilings are painted in warm amber shades and softly lit, but not too dark to see the menu.
A small open-air French café in downtown Philadelphia? Yes. Good luck getting a seat. The menu is generally Mediterranean: hummus, olives, several choices for meat and fish, and a long list of focaccia variations. The decor is minimalist: bare white walls, stainless steel ducts, and cool green window frames. The windows are the dominant feature here. In summer, they're wide open, and a cool breeze carries the flavors from one small table to the next. Sitting here is so pleasant, it's a great place for people-watching.
