Astral Plane Millenium In City Paper
City Paper visits Astral Plane Millennium and is not impressed, mainly with the service but finds some dishes that could be worth noting.
Hope comes in the form of Drunken Chicken. Breast slices are soaked in sherry and peppered with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg with raisins and almonds. Along with it are long strips of thick-sliced smoked ham â€” an odd presentation but a nice counterpoint. It’s not mind-blowing, but it’s a dish you don’t see anywhere else around town â€” the kind of thing that could set Millennium apart.
There will be some Philadelphians who will miss the original Astral Plane, who, out of geographic loyalty, may visit this one to pay their respects or see what the new owners have done. But nostalgia is by definition fleeting, and there need to be better reasons to buy your dinner here.
