Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Nick Elmi’s Old City debut is a collaboration between the Top Chef winner and Philly bar royalties David Frank and Stephen Simons (of Cantina Los Caballitos, Dos Segundos, Royal Tavern and Royal Izakaya fame). A selection of raw-bar offerings and house-made charcuterie complement snacks and larger dishes, all graced with Elmi’s signature French touch. The bi-level leather-and-wood dining room is warmed by a fireplace, making it the ideal place to share a few plates, a couple of cocktails and a bottle from the wine list that features natural notes.
