The food here is just part of the overall experience here. You will love the unusual pairings of ingredients, the eye pleasing presentations and the solid service. In fact, I will bed back there tonight. Only negative is no reservations.

Chloe is a small, fantastic BYOB tucked away in Old City. Walking by, you might almost miss it. The service is really great. Most of the servers have been there forever and really know the menu well. Some may feel the menu never changes, and that's probably true, but they always have several spectacular specials. So, I'm always pleasantly surprised with something new - I've been there probably 3-4 times in the last year. It's small and may get crowded and loud, so you've got be okay with that aspect of it. I think of it as "intimate" instead of "crowded." No reservations, so you may wait, but it's never been unreasonable - and the food is worth the wait. Overall, it's a nice little neighborhood gem. Enjoy.

Right across the street from the Betsy Ross house is this small, BYOB, cash only restaurant with delicious food.The standard menu is great, but every night there is a list of wonderful specials on the blackboard. Try the ragu over pappardelle, the smoked trout plate garnished with horseradish cream and giant capers, the grilled caesar salad. Everthing is wonderful. The restaurant is open only Wednesday-Saturday and does not take reservations. Come for a cozy evening of wonderful food.

Chloe is a small BYOB in Old City. The room is nice, but it became uncomfortably loud as it filled up since there is nothing the absorb sound. The food was average to below average. The place that seems to be popular perhaps because they make it very clear that they don't take reservations, which I think increases the interest level of the patrons. Chole certainly did not do anything special. In fact, our main courses were not good. We were in a group of 6. The salads and appetizers were good. The salmon was dry and charred ("grilled" was advertised), the lamb and ravioli were fair, as judged by our dining companions. Our group meets for dinner 5 times a year, and this is the first "miss" that we have experienced.

Reading some of the reviews from 2005, I can only surmise that there has been a big change ... this was one of the best meals I've eaten out in a long time! Yummy. The humous they brought (not ordered, just a little treat) was light and tasty, not overly garlic or pasty like some I've had), the asian shrimp appetizer was very fresh and the scallop entree was perfect. They now take credit cards. Alcohol - byob. Our hosts stopped to put in our name before picking us up and returning, so the wait was not too long. Small place and cozy - the chef came out to say hello -- possibly our hosts are regulars and so we got special treatment? An overall delight!
