    $10 for a Southern Tier 2x? Woof.

    Wow Veuve
    Clicquot and Dom Perignon! I only looked at the sparkling section to know that this restaurant will be corny. Overblown most definitely bloated fare designed with nothing but a price tag in mind. I can’t wait to read all of the terrible reviews because I can’t afford it and I live to hate.

    No way Jose. The old yentas who frequent the Kimmel Center are going to straight balk at this cartera.

  • GUY

    That is the worst design ever. It looks like my office.

  • Matt Hackleback

    LOL $10 for a Nora and a Southern Tier?! Talk about out of touch. Herb grilled focaccia on ALL THE THINGS. How long until this place closes and is replaced with a new concept like Chifa was? 1 year? Less?

  • Kamy

    150% or more markup. Who would pay that? Out of touch.
