A Full Plate

A Full Plate
Kirsten Henri visits A Full Plate in Northern Liberties hoping the food can match the charming decor.
The bright green and purple walls invite. The hand painted tables and hanging pots and pans have you excited by the prospects. But in the end, “A Full Plate, so promising to look at, disappointed when it came to the food.”
Brunch was the most enjoyable, the eggs benedict “reconfigured with spicy panko-encrusted fried green tomatoes standing in for the English muffin and mozzarella cheese tucked under the eggs and hollandaise.” Three croisants, each stuffed with a different ingredients was also above par.
But too few of the other dishes were more than mediocre.
You leave wanting to love A Full Plate, and it does have potential, and the decor is already there.

  • Eating it up

    I really enjoy A Full Plate, and thought this review in the PW was kind of off base, especially when the place has only been open. To be honest I was a little shocked to see a review so early since the proprietors have barely had a chance to get their feet wet in the mad restaurant business. The one thing Kristin Henri was right on about is how darn creative and cute the place is. Try it out, the food is good, and the atmosphere is great.
