Crudo Alert

If we had a dollar for every time someone asked us where to get crudo in Philadelphia we’d be penniless. But that doesn’t mean the Mediterranean equivalent of ceviche isn’t worth seeking out. Positano Coast has been on the crudo tip for awhile now and Girasole offers a selection as well.

Among the offerings at Girasole:

  • Branzino, Mediterranean sea bass marinated with extra virgin olive oil, meyer lemon and mild mustard
  • Ricciola, Spencer Golf Hiramasa Kingfish, marinated with fresh blood orange served with tomato and avocado
  • Tonno, Port Lincoln Blue fin tuna, lime zests with drops of aged balsamic reduction.

Girasole is also offering prix fixe options for lunch and dinner. The lunch is available weekdays from noon to 2;30 and dinner is available Sunday through Friday, 5pm to 6:30.
