Philly Restaurant Review: Garces Trading Company

A few nights we met friends out for dinner in Garces Trading Company in Philadelphia. A friend that lives in the city recommended it and I’m so glad we went. The food was delicious and the atmosphere super cool.

We all started with the chef’s cheese plate. The cheese menu is great — you pick a cheese and then a condiment. You get to choose between different spreads and marmalades. They were so good. I was taking mental notes on how I might replicate the condiments at home.

They also have a huge olive oil bar where you can sample and purchase olive oils from around the world. People that visit us and get spoiled on good oils often lament that they can’t find them at home. Well, if you are near the Philly area you can get them at Garces for sure.

We all got different entrees. Rob and I split a pizza and the steak frites. Both were excellent! Initially I was hesitant to eat somewhere with a Mediterranean-focused menu, but I’m so so so glad we went. It was perfect for a night out with friends and I highly recommend it.
