on one of my recent trips to philadelphia, i discovered the dandelion, a cute little pub on the corner of sansom and s 18th street. the atmosphere is engligh pub-style, with dark mahogany and rich colors. the music was better-than-average and the overall ambiance was really nice. i ordered the eggs benedict, and everything was cooked perfectly. my boyfriend had the toasted bagel and catskills smoked salmon, and even though it doesn’t sound like much of a meal, the salmon was fresh and the presentation was flawless.
the dandelion is a stephen starr restaurant, the ‘it’ chef of philadelphia, and i have to say, this restaurant did not disappoint. if you’re looking for a nice low-key place for brunch in philly, this is definitely a good choice.
