Philadining visits David Katz’s Mémé and gives the new restaurant his usual, thorough once-over.

There were no big culinary surprises here, just expert execution of good recipes. It’s interesting that at a table of jaded diners, the simple roast chicken was frequently mentioned as a favorite. The juiciness of the meat, the intensity of the sauce, the roasted crackle of the skin, all made for a rare treat. Why is it so unusual to find good chicken? Similarly the steak was a piece of excellent quality meat, cooked carefully, with only a subtle buff-up from a good sauce. Good ingredients cooked well – it’s hard to find fault with that.
