I will be staying at Hotel Banys Orientals from December 28th to 30th with 2 friends for mine. On the 31st, we will have to move from Hotel Banys Orientals to Casa Camper which is in Eixample district. I am not happy about moving but we have no choice. How Eixample district restaurant scene is compared to El Born District? Do you know?

We would love to have nice sit down dinner one night. We made a reservation at Casa Calvet for New Year Eve. Is this good a choice for dinner?

Any advises would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Dessert in Philadelphia

Matyson’s food was outstanding. We LOVED the food. We brought two bottles of wine (Caymus Cab 2004 and Spelletich Cellars Chardonnay) because I was not sure what I wanted to order. I initially had my eyes on the grilled Spanish octopus appetizer and the pan roasted California white sea bass for dinner. But, I ended up ordering something completely different.

I had for my appetizer, the slow roasted pork belly and my husband ordered the grilled octopus. Both dishes were cooked perfectly. The pork belly was seasoned just right and it was very tasty and sweet. The grilled octopus was so tender and was seasoned the way my husband likes it. According to my husband, he had eaten octopus on four continents, but likes the one at Matyson best!

For entree, I had the juniper spiced duck breast and he had the grilled New York strip. I liked my entree, but I was not crazy about it. I am very hard to please when it comes to duck dishes. But, my husband was very satisfied with his steak.

For dessert, it took me a while to decide what I wanted. We ended up staying at the restaurant for dessert. I had the famous lemon soufflé tart and he got the coconut cream pie. My tart was light and tasty. I can see why people like the dessert here. My husband loved his coconut pie, especially with the macadamia nuts.

Thank you all for the advice, and I’m looking forward to our next dinning our experience.

Cheers,

Noi

We're having dinner at Matyson on Feb 17th. I browsed through the menu, everything looks great, except I don't like their dessert selection. Looking for a suggestion for a late night dessert and cocktails. I prefer something light for a dessert. Please advise.
