Dropped in on a Thursday evening for drinks and dinner. We were visitng my sister-in-law and she always raves about the place. Very small, dimly lit with a modern feel. And I was told this was the bigger of the two locations. Menu was seperated into 4 pages: food, beer, wine, and cheese. We started with a small cheese platter and a few appetizrs. Beer list was not huge but was very well thought out. About 30 offering, 6 or so on tap. Didnt quite follow how they had them broken into groups, but still a very user friendly menu with descriptions of each beer. I started with a Cantillon Gueuze which was presented to me like a wine bottle and served in a wine glass. I personally liked that touch. Moved onto a Yards Extra Special Ale and finished with a Rulles Tripel. Beers were all served in proper glassware and at proper temps. My wife really enjoyed the wine list as well. We went ahead and had dinner as well. Food was good but not great, and seemed a little pricey for the portions, especially the cheese. Service was friendly but a touch sporadic.

Overall I certainly did enjoy this place. No, it is not even in the same league as Monk's when it comes to the beer but they still have an excellent selection and a much friendlier overall menu for the non-beer crowd. I would certianly go back if I find myself back in Philly.

After trying to go to the now-shuttered Farmers' Cabinet and stopping at Moriarty's for a beer or two, the wife and I ended up having lunch at Tria on Spruce.

This is a classy spot in Center City/Washington Square, pretty packed on a Sunday at 4pm at that odd hour between brunch and dinner.

We loved the food, a succession of smart small plates like truffled egg toast, crab-stuffed peppers, cheese bruschetta and what not. You can order a couple of small jawns and be all set for the day.

The beer selection is divided in "invigorating", "friendly", "profound" and "extreme". I didn't find anything terribly extreme or profound on the list, but there is some good stuff. Of the 27 beers listed, 8 are drafts: Allagash White, Victory Braumeister Pils, Anderson Valley Hop Ottin', Two Brothers, Dupont Moinette, Double Jack... plus all the cans and bottles.

I'd love to see a broader selection of beer here, but the food more than makes up for it. I will certainly come back and visit the other Tria locations.
