After an evening show in Philly, walking distance from The Academy of Music, we had dinner at Valanni, a shiek restaurant with modern mediterranean-latin taps and signature dishes.
If you are looking for exquisite flavors and something new, definitely make your way to 1229 Spruce Street. The food is impressive and elegant yet approachable and comforting.

My favorite: Grilled Romaine Salad with Smoked Treviso, Polenta Croutons, Manchego, Bacon and Chipotle Caesar Dressing.
Grilled Octopus with sundried tomato, fennel, olives, ancho-chili spice rub with smoked paprika and crispy potatoes.
Granny Smith Apple, White Chocolate, Cranberry and Walnut Bread Pudding with warm caramel sauce, vanilla bean ice cream and fresh mint.

When its freezing cold outside there is nothing like stepping into a cafe with the sweet smell of chocolate and coffee lingering in the air and the promise of rich warmth from a cup of Hot Chocolate. Stumbling upon Naked, Chocolate Cafe was no different from stepping into a french cafe in Paris.
You can order your hot chocolate American style (diluted with a little bit of steamed milk) or European style (thick consistency). I ordered the Aztec Hot Chocolate, American Style, with a sweet puff of whip cream on the side.
I also treated myself to a caramel filled mini Belgian Waffle, chocolate coated with cocoa crisps. Sounds delicious doesn't it?

The cheese steak was delicious...creamy cheeze wiz, onions and soft Italian bread with a little tug on the crust.
