Foie Gras and Waygu Carpaccio Earn High Marks at JG Domestic; Dandelion’s Burger Is ‘Fairly Run of the Mill’

• In his Three Bell review, Craig LaBan notes that JG Domestic’s potted duck “was a decadent parfait of juniper-scented duck rillettes layered with creamy foie gras mousse and orange gelée, and the Strube Ranch Wagyu beef carpaccio “melted away on the tongue with a gorgeously marbled rare beefiness that was chased by dabs of creamy goat cheese.” [Inquirer]

• The tortilla soup at South Philly’s Tres Jalapenos “was beyond reproach” for Adam Erace, but the chicken in pumpkin-seed mole “didn’t live up to the advertising.” [Courier-Post]

• Fairmount’s Rybread “makes good sandwiches,” and the namesake dish — crab cake, greens, tomato, chipotle mayo, served on a brioche bun — is a “euphoric explosion of palatable gratification.” [Midtown Lunch]

• Two Eat Philly check out Starr’s Dandelion and discover the cheesy cauliflower has “enough flavor and fat to fool any veggie-hater,” but the burger is “fairly run of the mill.” [Two Eat Philly]
