A Taste of Tredici Enoteca

My trip back from Austin was hectic. After landing in Dallas around 4:25, I thought I’d have a tiny bit of time to grab a salad or some veggies to pair with an RxBar for a dinner of sorts on the plane. But, no, Dallas airport had different plans. I would sit on the runway at the back of the plane waiting for a gate to become available for a half hour and literally run to the tram and from the tram to my gate in a different terminal, panting as I just made my connecting flight to Philly. So, Rxbar alone for dinner it was. I had no veggies all day other than a few pieces of lettuce in a hummus wrap I was served at lunch and my body was craving some greens!

Saturday Feb 13 clearly was a busy Valentine’s celebration night so, to just roll up in Philly on the way home from the airport and find a table was risky. We headed to 13th and Sansom where there’s plenty to choose from. We hit Zavino first cause their Brussels and spag squash are ridic and put our name in. The plan was to check out Charlie was a Sinner next but we ran into Tredici Enoteca first, just in case they had room, because while we had not yet been there, it looks so fab and they have a vegetable section on their menu. Table for 2 was available and it was the best decision ever!

We sat down and were greeted with super fresh garlicky olives. I haven’t liked olives ever but, these weren’t bad. Tim love love loved them.

We were just planning to share some veggies and have a beverage. The server informed us that the menu is composed of “small plates” meant to be shared. We’re thinking, Garces style, 7 green beans will come out on a plate, but we were served massive portions! Below is the unbelievably yummy Mediteranean Sampler – plain hummus  w/ perfect flavor & texture, grilled bread, quinoa salad, edamame falafel and warm peppers & green beans. We also got extremely fresh green beans prepped in a garlic basil sauce as well as currant glazed Brussels {sans bacon}. The Brussels and falafel tasted just as good leftover as a snack the next day!  

Who else has been to Tredici? What did you order? We can’t wait to go back to try an entree soon!
