The last time you hosted a dinner party, boozy Aunt Helen felt compelled to let everyone know she felt like a sardine in a poor-excuse-for-an-apartment can.
Ease the tension with a trip to Supper’s new Farmhouse Table, where eight to ten hungry folks can comfortably gather in a nook tucked away on the second floor.
Unlike your burned pot roast, owner and chef Mitch Prensky’s American food (think collard greens, crispy apple cobbler, and crushed-cornflake bread) would bag a blue ribbon at the state fair.
Go with the seasonal three-course menu filled with produce from Prensky’s Blue Elephant Farm. Or ask him to tailor the spread completely to your — or Helen’s — tastes (beets, marshmallows, you name it).
Meals are served family style, so you may still find yourself fighting over seconds.
Supper, 926 South Street (215-592-8180 or supperphilly.com), starting at $50 per person.
