PHLReview

Lark has Schuylkill River views, candle lighting, and waiters on standby ready to fold your napkin when you head to the restroom. With that kind of fancy cloth origami, the Bala spot is the perfect place to grab some Mediterranean food with a new person you really like–or one you’ve named a few kids with. The butter roasted scallops are flawlessly charred and come with roasted squash, pumpkin seed, and a guanciale vinaigrette. When we want something that pairs well with their grilled trout (which gets a juicy boost from the sautéed green grapes), we go with their G Funk cocktail, which blends gin, fennel, and herby quinquina aperitif together for something refreshing.
