The draw is the grilled langostinos, four to an order, a plate-filling display rounded out by black olives and tomatoes. The meat, tasting like a cross between lobster and shrimp, is sweet and addictive, if dearly priced.
Dinner Suggested Lunch Not Needed
This small, noisy, lace-curtained dining room, stark white save for a few framed posters, sits at the end of a rowhouse block that stops at a retaining wall for I-95. Most of the dishes are simple gifts: mussels and clams, red or white, with a spicy zip; handmade potato gnocchi in a light tomato-basil or gorgonzola-mascarpone sauce; a fine veal scallopini with mushrooms and artichokes.
Langostini, new name, (known as Langostino's) -renovated, cozy, relaxing and friendly BYOB place, great food! Best home made gnocchi!! Every entree but one, the Langostini plate, is under $20 and unlike almost all other center city and South Philly restaurants, there is plenty of free public parking! Recommended! You can make a reservation on their web site . Posted by nataly: Jan. January 19th, 2009 at 3:14 PM
