What did you have? The menu on their website sounds pretty good. Do their wine suggestions correspond to wines that are available at the Wine & Spirits there on Chestnut?

I absolutely loved every dish I had that evening. As far as the wine goes, I'm not sure if the wine suggestions are available at the Wine and Spirits on Chestnut but dinner was fantastic with the bottle we took along.
