Hello my Foodie Followers….tonight we dined at Eulogy (www.eulogybar.com) located in the club district of Olde City Philadelphia. Eulogy is defined as “as a speech or writing in praise of something or someone; often used a funerals or wakes”. Well…we will work with it. We arrived on time at 6:40pm and found our way to the dining area. Upon arriving, we were seated and brought menus. Very casual environment. Lindsay, our server, took our drink order and food order at the same time. I had the usual and Al had a delirium tremens beer. For beginnings, we both ordered a salad. I had the mozzarella and tomato, served over greens with roasted peppers and a balsamic reduction. I thought the dressing was overdone. Al had the calamari salad over greens with a thai chili vinaigrette. Al and I both thought the vinaigrette made the fried calamari a bit soggy, although the calamari was cooked perfectly. For our entrees, Al had the exotic trio of house made sausages. His trio included a rabbit, boar and venison sausage over mashed potatoes with carrots served with a great sauce. He thought the boar sausage was the best. I had the Belgium fish and chips, served with a remoulade dipping sauce and malt vinegar. A second round of drinks were served. I thought the fish was done properly, not overly greasy. The frites were crisp. Al finished his dinner with a Rogue double mocha beer. Our neighboring table had a fly land in her beer. The waitress was not overly concerned and showed no compassion to their plight. Al had a bug crawl up the back of his neck. Thankfully, the other neighboring table swatted it off. The place reminded me of a fraternity house, a bit dark and dingy. The food items were fair, at best. The drinks were better. I award Eulogy a 2.5 out of 5 Diva Crowns. Bon Appetit!
