(page 7 of 34)
Alfresco Happy Hour >>> Chanticleer Garden
Friday nights at Chanticleer are one of the Main Line’s best-kept summer secrets. The gardens stay open until 8 p.m., and you can bring along a picnic meal and your favorite adult beverage to enjoy while kicking back on 35 exceptional acres. 786 Church Road, Wayne; (610) 687-4163, chanticleergarden.org.
Alternative to Burgers and Fries >>> Kibbi Platter at The Mediterranean
Lean ground lamb is mixed with onions and spices, layered with caramelized onions and pine nuts, and baked to tasty, aromatic perfection. Served with yogurt, hummus and salad, it puts that Quarter Pounder to shame. 150 W. Gay St., West Chester; (610) 431-7074, themedwcpa.com.
Antipasto Plate >>> Restaurant Alba
It changes daily, so you never know what chef Sean Weinberg will be highlighting, but you can rest assured that the $15-per-person antipasto starter will be a stunning five- to six-item tasting of cheeses, veggies, seafood and/or meats. 7 W. King St., Malvern; (610) 644-4009, restaurantalba.com.
Appetizer >>> Fried Artichoke Hearts at Bar Savona
Savory, crispy and highly addictive, Savona’s golden fried artichoke hearts with lemon zest and sea salt would make a great entrée. Maybe we’ll order more than one next time. 100 Old Gulph Road, Gulph Mills; (610) 520-1200, savonarestaurant.com.
