Greeted with a friendly face and a warm handshake at the front door, I was shown to my seat at the bar. Immediately upon arrival, I was greeted by the bartender, Shane who ended up tending to filling my wine glasses and delivering my delicious colorful plates. I immediately felt at home under the red glow from the specially selected votives adorning the bar. I met with the owner, Norris Jordan, and he let me know this special detail alongside uniquely curated hand crafted tables he created and the selected antiques behind the bar from a former Philadelphia hotel.
The bartender and a Lou Bird regular discussed a special looking orange behind the bar and asked me if I wanted to taste this special fruit the costumer swore by for his cocktail. This was an orange grapefruit hybrid. Shane kindly pressed me fresh juice from this fruit and I immediately felt special and cared for as I enjoyed this surprise treat.
