NE Philly:Anything new/anything good?

We had dinner at macaronis on sat night 9/26....overall it was very good....we had calamari...arugula/fig salad...pumpkin ravioli[a special]...rigatoni with sausage...chicken sicialian and a fish with risotto...also a cannoli for dessert. Service is good however the noise level can be high. They don't take reservations. Prices seem high but are well worth it

From the Boot in Ambler - happily reporting back!

Ate there sunday night 9/13...roasted red pepper salad[from a jar with provolone sliced from a roll..deli style..linguine with hot peppers...not hot at all...rolls were like parker house white bread with grease and garlic on top..only thing that was decent was a side of spinach sauteed in oil and garlic. I can,t believe how mediocre this place was..sorrentos on ridge is much better and they,re not so hot!

Any opinions on Slate or Noble American Cookery near Rittenhouse Square?

I,ve dined at Noble twice...once right after they opened and last saturday[8/1]. Very good both times and they have lowered the prices a bit. I had the scallop app,sable entree and blueberry-peach cobbler. Also a side of delicious local veggies.The entree was great. Ask to sit upstairs as they did a great renovation. Good eating!!

Also umbria on gtown ave and wine thief both in mt airy.
