New wine/tapas bar Chick’s Cafe on 7th & Kater is doing an impressive job of turning a former old man bar into a destination for some of the most high end dining to open south of South Street in a while—and we’re pretty damn okay with a world where you can get truffle liver pate in South Philly. Chick’s is the first restaurant in Philadelphia to offer gnudi on a regular basis.
What are gnudi? They’re Florentine spinach-and-ricotta dumplings called after the Italian word for “nude” because of their lack of dough—Gridskipper offers the best description of gnudi we’ve seen yet. Chick’s rendition includes prosciutto as well.
