This was my first time at this restaurant. The server was good and knew the menu. Sorry, I forgot his name. His food suggestions were very good, which one was the roasted Brussel spouts. Awesome!!! I do recommend for any one.

Dinner at the Continental Midtown 18th and Chestnut. Outside it looks like a 60s diner. We were pleasantly surprised by a cool interior, outstanding service, and delicious, creative food. Light spinach ravioli for me, udon soup with chicken dumplings and a crispy calamari salad for...More
