Dispatches From Dave: First Night at Noble

Just enjoyed dinner at Noble on the 2000 block of Sansom Street — the first night of regular service. This stretch of Sansom is shaping up to be a foodie mecca: Tinto, Melograno, Capogiro, Porcini, Vicsushi, and now Noble, offering modern American cooking paired with an all–American wine list and cocktails from ex–Apothecary bartenders.

Two Tips Of The Toque To Yello’Bar

Phyllis Stein-Novack checks out Yello’Bar, the latest bar in the Graduate Hospital area.

There are all sorts of burgers on the bill of fare, but Mom is a purist. She likes hers medium-rare with no topping. It arrived as ordered with lettuce and tomato on the side. There had to be a half-pound of ground sirloin, so we cut it for easier eating. A pile of hot, grease-free curly fries came with her dinner.

I have loved Carolina pulled pork ever since I first tasted it many years ago. I ordered this Southern classic in a sandwich ($9), which had a slight taste of vinegar — the traditional ingredient. I thought it was skimpy compared to the burger. Still, it was tender and tasty and served on a fresh ciabatta roll. I also received a pile of the tasty curly fries.

Traditional Irish favorites such as shepherd’s pie are on the menu. Edward loves my beef stew with red wine so he wanted to try Yello’Bar’s ($9), which was a jumbo pot pie covered in puff pastry. The stew itself was delicious, chock-full of carrots, celery, potatoes and beef. The stock was laced with Guinness and imparted a fine flavor. The crust remained crisp and not a bit soggy.

Yello’bar Before And After

We’ve been considering doing these before and after shots for awhile now, but it’s just been too chilly to be riding a bike all around the city taking photos of places. Thankfully Philly Skyline isn’t the bunch of sissies we are. So here’s what the Yello’bar looked like last August and what it looks like today.
