I don’t even know where to begin. Shall I start with ambiance or shall I start with their fare?
Borough, that I originally spelled with an S, is apparently something that you can find in a dictionary. Hahaha!
Anyway, I loved it, at least from our first visit. It was surprising that I opted for a pasta dish considering that that usually is in the bottom of my list. Why shouldn’t I? It sounded different and it got me really curious. I ordered Homemade Pumpkin Ravioli with basil puree, bits of cranberry and pecan nuts. My verdict? It was heavenly. I can’t think of any other way to describe it. I’ve yet to ask if there is a vegan option after which I’d have to bring someone there. Right? And I really can’t think of how it cannot be vegan!!!
Phil read it from the paper and as we had nothing else planned we decided to give it a try. I did not expect much from it because oftentimes American food spells blah, well, for me. Somehow, they’re too bland, too fatty, too boring and too big a serving. My expectations then were somewhat close to that before having that order of ravioli.
Phil on the other hand got Sole Amandine, something that I never heard of. He said he has read good things about it a couple of times from books so he just had to try it. He says it is fish that tastes like steak. It could be the fish or the way they cooked to perfection. Whatever the case is, it’s all good.
I think Borough is something so simple and something a bit fancy at the same time. Most of their viands are familiar but they spruce it up a bit. The result is warmth and goodness.
Have I mentioned I loved the interiors? Everything about it impressed me. The upholstery, the half-finished bar and walls, the pipes used for the staircase and legs of the tables, the lighting, the wall filled with mirrors and etc. It is a wonder they pulled it off!
Actually I don’t remember the rest, I’m guessing that’s a serving of salad, philly cheese steak, steak and eggs and onion soup.
You have to try their fries too. I would say you can drop by for other kinds of beers but it is not so reliable. We have tried chocolate buffalo wings but it didn’t taste so chocolatey at all and it also didn’t look appetizing enough so nothing fancy. Borough is costly but for those up to try something new, surely you can spare some more.
