cjsadler Posted August 2, 2005 Share Posted August 2, 2005 Had dinner on Sat at Alison at Bluebell. Definitely add this one to the list of great Philly BYOBs (though it's in the northern suburb of Bluebell).Things I had a taste of:Chili dusted skate wing with a cornmeal and avocado tartBest skate I've ever had and the tart (of sorts) was delicious.Monkfish with chorizo, potatoes and greensInteresting preparation, as the monkfish was pounded very thin, breaded and fried.Fresh fig salad with goat cheese dressingMango tart tatinBlueberry-corn polenta cakeThis was really delicious. The 'cake' part of the ramekin had corn kernals and blueberry in it. It was topped with a creme brulee like layer containing more blueberries. I'm curious how they made this.Great service too. Alison came out to chat with us after dinner, as our server told her we were up from DC, which I thought was nice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
