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.
