Blogging season is here! Covering new, cool things in Philadelphia (or even the oldies that I may just have not discovered yet) requires going to a lot of events (which I am so grateful for). Seriously, forcing myself to go out after work was one of the reasons I started this blog, and I can honestly say getting out there has helped me in so many aspects of my life. But, the one thing about events in this city (that I’ve found, anyway) is, when they’re happening, they’re all happening. After a very boring January, this last week was my first week back out with my normal schedule – and I had so much fun. Come along on a week in my life . . .
Today I’m coming to you with a little mid-Restaurant Week post to tell you about the glory that is Barbuzzo (110 South 13th Street). In all of my Philadelphia dining experiences, I had only been to Barbuzzo once for lunch. I knew this year I was making my reservations early, and I was so happy this little place did not let me down.
Joined by my friends Eric and Frannie, we stopped by for dinner on Thursday. I’ve heard that Barbuzzo can feel crowded, but we were seated towards the front and were just fine. The cocktails and wine list looked great, but after glancing at the menu, I knew it was going to be a brew night for me. We were greeted with complimentary grilled bread (a common theme of my meal) and sheep’s milk ricotta drizzled with EVOO. I don’t fight these things.
