I’m sorry. Or – You’re welcome.

We started the New Harvest events with a cocktail reception last night. I hadn’t met any of the other bloggers in person so it was nice to finally say “hello” in person!IMG 8592 thumb In West Philadelphia…

I drank a lot of wine. I’ve had a stressful week with finding out I’m moving and then proceeding to try and organize the move. Thank Jesus for wine.

(There were also passed appetizers that I enjoyed, but didn’t take pictures of.)IMG 8591 thumb In West Philadelphia…

I didn’t take pictures of all the wine, but I’m sure you trust me on this one.IMG 8595 thumb In West Philadelphia… 

The food, like the company, was amazing. It is the best to eat with food bloggers because everyone enjoys food, tries new things and is willing to share! Plus, I’m not the only one with a camera to bust out.

We started with appetizers…IMG 8598 thumb In West Philadelphia…

Lemon scented Hummus with garlic naan bread. Both the hummus and the bread were delicious. I think this was my fave appetizer.IMG 8606 thumb In West Philadelphia…

Roasted Vegetable PlatterIMG 8602 thumb In West Philadelphia…

Seafood! This one was too scary/too much work for me though, so I passed.IMG 8608 thumb In West Philadelphia…

Plus the cheese plate – we actually got all the appetizers on the menu. We are for real.IMG 8615 thumb In West Philadelphia…

I ordered the split pea soup that was presented like this…IMG 8616 thumb In West Philadelphia…

and then the waiter poured the soup into it at the table. It was very pretty icon smile In West Philadelphia… I love a good presentation. IMG 8619 thumb In West Philadelphia…

I split the lobster tacos with Jenna. The tortilla was a little greasy, but the inside was tasty. I love lobster!IMG 8627 thumb In West Philadelphia…

And I ordered the gnocchi – which I’ve never ordered from a restaurant before. Let me tell you – this was a lot better that TJ’s frozen gnocchi. I need to get out (of TJ’s) more.IMG 8625 thumb In West Philadelphia…

Even though I was stuffed dessert sounded too good to pass up, especially when I asked about the apple fritters and the waiter described them as the best donuts of your life.

Sold!

I opted to have them served with chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla because I strongly believe dessert must include chocolate.

    So, I don’t know if you have time, but if you do, go to El Vez (121 W. 13th St) and get the guacamole. I know that you’re a guac lover like me.. and they have the most amazing guac!!!
