"Food is usually good, somewhat pricey, altho on this occasion the lemon tart was tasteless. Crab cakes were nice, hamburger was good despite the winter tomato slice. Staff is very attentive."

El Poquito, a Mexican Cantina, pronounced (el-poe-kee-toe), means “the little one” in Spanish, named after a fabled Mexican cafe racer that rode up and down the coast of Mexico and California. El Poquito is a traditional cantina featuring tacos, ceviches and housemade guacamole and a selection of tequilas, mezcals, margaritas and a variety of Mexican and domestic beers. The space offers an outdoor patio made complete by communal tables and cozy fire pits, perfect for gatherings with friends and families as well as several options for private dining and events. Additional parking is located behind the restaurant for patrons to conveniently pick up take out orders.

"Perhaps the restaurant needs more time to work on the food-it was mostly not good. Manager did take a few items off the bill, such as the poor carnitas taco and gloppy shrimp appetizer-which requires one to pay extra for chips to scoop it up! Waitress was attentive but too busy upselling items. Extremely noisy, in part because of one booming patron and his attendant group of 3.
Perhaps we'll re-try in a few months, since it's in the neighborhood and we'd like to see it be worth going to.

Located in the middle of Philadelphia's charming Chestnut Hill neighborhood, Paris Bistro has made quite a splash since it opened in late January 2014. The setting and food are authentic bistro - the crowd is lively and the menu is reminiscent of the many bistros that dot Paris' arrondissement. Downstairs, the jazz cafe features the area's best talent playing a mixture of standards, Great American Songbook classics and music from the Jazz Era of the early 1900's. Make an evening of it with reservations for dinner upstairs and a jazz set after (seating in the cafe is on a first-come, first-seated basis).<br /><br />

"Very traditional bistro fare, fairly priced(altho the wines by the glass are pricey).Excellent house salad, very good almond cake for dessert. Attentive, pleasant service. Can be noisy when busy, which it was not this snowy night."

Pescatore specializes in Italian Cuisine with a rustic, Mediterranean flair. Pastas are made fresh each day, and all fish is caught and brought to your plate directly from the boat.

"The food is good but sometimes salty and overfussy-too many ingredients, each good, but together
they can overwhelm the senses rather than letting the primary item shine thru. Salads were more spare and quite tasty and the ricotta cheese cake was unusually delicious!
Staff was friendly and attentive.

Focusing on market-fresh, Italian-inspired food at 1216 Spruce Street inhabits the old Camac Food Market building, a historic space that has long stood vacant on the corner of Camac and Spruce Streets, just East of Broad St.<br /><br />Mercato infuses slow cooking traditions of Old World Italy with an experimental style and bold take on new Italian American cuisine, placing primary importance on using ingredients that are at their peak that day.

"Delicious antipasti, excellent pastas, all house-made. Very good bread and composed butter, as well as fresh mozzarella. Only the dessert disappointed because the donuts were heavy and greasy-a surprise given the caliber of the rest of the food. Very attentive service, well done in this small, contained setting."
