The Naked Truth

Verdad Restaurant Opens

so true!

Lately, it seems as if Philly has more tapas bars than tatas bars.

How’s a discerning customer to choose?

Here to help you make a decision is Verdad, Bryn Mawr’s newest addition. Nick Farina (Blush) and Howard Taylor’s (Carmine’s Creole Cafe) dark blue and gold, casually luxe restaurant has Latin flair and European sensibilities. It takes from both geographic locations in taste and style (and blows the top off the Lilliputian-plate trend).

Dine on Mission figs stuffed with brie and drizzled with aged balsamic reduction. Stick to the land with duck with grilled pineapple cherry tequila sauce. Dip a toe in the sea with crispy tuna with pea shoots, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes in a St. Germain sauce. Hardly tapas-size, the paella with lobster, oyster, shrimp, mussels, and saffron begs to be shared.

So take along your bosom buds.

Verdad, 818 West Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr (610-520-9100).
