Carmine’s Creole Cafe

Carmine’s Creole Cafe
Philadelphia Magazine visits Carmine’s Creole Cafe in Bryn Mawr and finds the food is much the same even if the address is not.

With that change of address — its third in nine years — Carmine’s went from a spartan 44-seat BYOB with a no-reservations policy to a 75-seat space with a pricey martini list (including a potent take on the classic Hurricane), live blues, and a full reservation book. The menu is much the same, with some successful dishes and others that are out of balance, memorable only for being over-seasoned; with the addition of the bar, the vibe is loud — very loud — and livelier.
