Posts Tagged ‘Audrey Claire’

I went to Audrey Claire in Philadelphia for the second time.  Last time, I sat outside and I ordered the Salmon and a bunch of other yummy food.  This meal was excellent once again.  I really love this restaurant.

Our meal started with some great bread with a seasoned olive oil for dipping.  My sister and I split the baby Arugula Salad with candied figs, fresh berries, french lentils, and warm goat cheese.

This picture is from the last time that I went here since I forgot to snap a picture this time.  I love this salad.

For my entree, I ordered the Whole Branzino (a delicate white fleshed fish).  This came with a grilled lemon, cous cous, and roasted brussel sprouts.

This was my first time ordered a whole fish without it being fileted prior to eating.  Very fresh & delicious.  Branzino is one of my favorites.

We decided to skip on the dessert this time and instead ordered cups of tea.  On our walk home, I knew I wanted to stop at a frozen yogurt place that I’ve been meaning to go to, Yogorino.  This is an Italian Frozen Yogurt place and this location is the first one in the United States.  Their frozen yogurt is all-natural and organic.  They have one flavor, Tart.  However, this is not as tart as the typical tart yogurts that I have tasted.  Their toppings are amazing.  I am so, so upset that I did not take a picture because they presented the yogurt in a really pretty way.  I ordered a yogurt with raspberries, pomegranate seeds, & a semi-sweet chocolate sauce that hardened as it dried.  Heaven on earth.  I was licking my bowl clean.  Loved it.  I will be back soon so don’t fret, you will be able to see the best tasting yogurt ever!

Tonight after class, my Dad called asking if I had eaten dinner yet.  I hadn’t, but I was planning on some delicious Black Bean Chili with Avocado.  I had been craving it all day.  But then he said that him and my Mom were coming into the city and they wanted to take my sister, Danielle, and I out to dinner.  So, OF COURSE I said YES!!  We decided on a restaurant called Audrey Claire.  We walked over and discovered that it was Restaurant Week in Philly.  I had completely forgotten!  So the deal is 3 courses for $35.  Not too shabby.

I was torn on what to order for my first course.  Everything sounded SO good.  Ultimately, I decided on the Baby Arugula Salad with candied Figs, fresh berries, french lentils, and warm goat cheese.

This was incredibly good.  The fresh berries & figs were great.  There was so much Goat Cheese & it was WARM…good touch.

My Dad & Sister and I actually ordered the same first course & second course.  Boring, I know, but I think we all made awesome choices.  My Mom was a little different and ordered a Flat Bread with Bosc Pear & Gorgonzola with toasted sunflower seeds for her first course.

The Gorgonzola cheese was a little bit overwhelming, but otherwise it was pretty tasty.

For my second course, I chose the Grilled Salmon.  This came with a grilled lemon (awesome this way…it was so juicy), Pearled Pasta (not quite sure what flavorings were in this) & Green Snap Peas.

This was absolutely off-the-wall.  haha. I basically licked this plate clean.  The fish was so fresh and tasty it practically melted in my mouth.  Everything was awesome.

…and now for the THIRD COURSE…DESSERT!!!!

Cinnamon-Raisin Risotto Rice Pudding!!!!!  I LOVE Rice Pudding.  So I was so happy to see this as a choice on the menu.  This was awesome.  BUT, I have to say, it’s not the best I ever had.  The BEST Rice Pudding is made by my Mom-Mom Mary.  She is the one who got me hooked on the stuff!  Honestly, when she makes it, it’s impossible to stop eating it.  I have never tasted anything better.  It has to have raisins!

My Dad ordered the Banana Bread Pudding with some sort of White Chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

DSCN1715YUmmmmm.

My Mom ordered an Apple Cake with Whipped Cream.  I forgot to take a picture of it.  But I did help her finish it! haha.

This was my first time at this restaurant & I loved it!  They is indoor and outdoor seating, and we decided to sit outside.  I will definitely be going back.  I’m so glad that my parents came by to take us out.  I miss seeing them everyday!

Tomorrow I go to my first field placement observation.  Pretty excited about that.  But also nervous.  I’m with high school seniors & I’m used to working with the little guys!  But I’m excited for something new!

Well, since I went out to eat, I haven’t been able to do any work.  So I better go get on some of that.

Goodnight! 😛
